SMS message board
Scientists at Microsoft Research Cambridge (MSRC) are working on a range of new technologies and gadgets that might find their way into our lives. The thing is that the scientists start researching how people live, and then they try to find 'technological' ways to enhance that. Or is it the other way around? Here’s what they came out with: Home Note, a message board where you can send text messages to. It's a laptop-sized screen that acts as a message board. Family members can leave handwritten notes for each other, or send text messages to the board from their mobile phones. It will be nice to use this instead of leaving hand-scrawled notes on the fridge. Or, err, noot!
