Telebubble Machine

Built at the Toy Hacking Workshop (January 2008) by David Chatting, Craig McCahill and Robert Lenne - the Telebubble Machine blows bubbles when then someone calls or sends it a text message.

A simple hack using the backlit screen of the phone to trigger a light sensor and switch a relay to cause bubbles to be blown.

Shown at the curious show (April 2008) and at the British Film Institute London, during the onedotzero festival (November 2008).
