Slurp Tangible Interface: Real Tech or Rickroll?
July 6th, 2010
I like high tech stuff that is easy to use and looks sort of like magic. Such is the case with the new Slurp device that turned up today. It’s a squeezy dropper that has some tech gear grafted onto it.
If you watch the video, you will see that when you put the dropper section near a file on your computer screen and squeeze, the file is transferred to the device or at least across the network. When you go to another computer, you can squeeze the dropper and the file is placed onto the other machine.
The dude in the video then turns and squeezes the bulb and sends the file he has been moving to a set of speakers. Guess what plays- Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up. Any geek worth his salt knows that is the infamous Rickroll tune. I call BS. What do you think?
