Scott Draves - Electric Sheep
When the screen-saver is activated, the screen goes black and an animated 'sheep' appears. Behind the scenes, the screen-saver contacts an internet server and
joins the parallel computation of new sheep.
Speeder Reader combines the notion of dynamic typography with
the notion of the car as interface. A speed-reading protocol called
RSVP (for Rapid Serial Visual Presentation) allows people to learn to
read up to 2000 words per minute. This is because it flashes words
or short phrases onto the screen in front of you, affixed in one spot;
you don't have to move your eyes around a page to read. We give
you a gas pedal to control your rate of speed-reading and a steering
wheel to navigate between streams of text.
