Tool for armchair activists

Troika (remember the SMS Guerrilla Projector, DataSound and Electroprobe?) is back with a new website and some pretty amazing projects.


Tool for armchair activists is a machine for remote protest. It can be strapped to lampposts next institutional buildings in front of which many protests occur.

Thanks to its embedded mobile telecommunication device, the machine is able to receive incoming sms messages and speak them out loud through its megaphones, thus allowing the armchair activist to shout out its rants and protests in the comfort of his sitting room.

Programming and electronic development: Moritz Waldemeyer.
