For The Busy Protester

If you just can’t make it to the latest protest, don’t fear: Troika has the solution for you: the Tool for Armchair Protesters!

Troika teamed-up with Moritz Waldemeyer to create ‘Tool for armchair activists’, a machine for remote rants and protests. It can be strapped to lampposts in front of pro-eminent buildings like the house of parliament, or other institutional buildings in front of which many protests occur.

Thanks to its embedded mobile telecommunication device, the machine is able to receive incoming sms messages and speak them out loud through its powerful megaphone, thus allowing the armchair activist to shout out its rants and protests in the comfort of his sitting room.

Is teleprotesting the next big thing in activism? I really hope not..
