BLOOG - A machine that scrambles words and sentences of real-time blog posts, based on the look of a 1960’s Moog synthesizer. Pulling in RSS feeds, it scrolls through the text and adds/subtracts words.
It pulls in any RSS feed (for demonstration I used Technorati to create one that fetches all new net-wide blog posts about ‘music,’ har har). The knobs and sliders scroll through the text and add or subtract words from the screen, creating new ideas from the existing sentences.
