wifism.jpglive news visualization via pain stimulation: an Internet connected wireless device that can be fixed on any part of the body. it automatically detects the information from approximately 4,500 news sources worldwide updated continuously & analyzes them looking for specific keywords such as death, kill, murder, torture, rape, war, virus etc.. each time the text of the news contains one of these keywords, the wearable device is activated through the Wi-Fi network, providing an electric impulse. this impulse is calibrated so a certain (safe) amount of pain can be felt.

But this's quite one-sided. How about the converse optin?

While it looks for bad news and inflicts some pain based on what it finds, what about the other side? How about something that looks for good news, and gives pleasure somehow?

Of course, while an electric shock is pretty simple for pain, giving pleasure is a bit harder to figure out. Perhaps a slightly warm, massaging sensation?

Beats me. Guess this's an interesting challenge.

more like a web page art project, I'd say, since there's no way to purchase the device
