Pigeon view

Here’s an odd idea. The Urban Eyes
proposal by by Marcus Kirsch (UK) and Jussi Angesleva (Ireland) would
feed pigeons tiny RFID transmitters embedded in bird seed. When a
transmitting pigeon passed close enough to one of the CCTV cameras
watching the streets, the camera would transmit a video image to the
Urban Eyes server. You would then see how the city looked to a
particular pigeon in the 12 hours between ingestion and excretion.

This won third prize in the Fused Space
contest. The winning project proposed setting up light sticks on a
small Swedish island; lights would be lit when people visited an online
memorial for the dead. (I think.)
