Poem Bean

Poem Bean is a little, smart and loveable gadget with a beetle-sized silicon body, containing a button, LED and light sensor. You can store a poem or any personal message in your bean. Like a tiny new media hero, it carries a modern-day message in a bottle, and also connects literature and new media. The bean shows us how to rediscover poetry with the help of technology and morse signs.
