Brilliant 'UFO' Controlled Remotely by SMS
Clever, very clever. New York artist Peter Coffin teamed with London interactive architect Dominic Harris to launch a "UFO" of their own design earlier this month. The airborne mystery pod produced shock and awe among citizens of a small town last week when it hovered, lights aglow, in Gdansk, Poland.
Dubbed Peter Coffin's UFO Project, the 23-foot aluminum saucer incorporates 3,000 LED nodes controlled by a solid-state computer, according to Harris, head of Cinimod Studio.
"On board, a 6 Kw generator provides the system power," he said. "The overall UFO can be remotely controlled via SMS messaging."
All we know is, the thing looks pretty damn cool (video embedded).
