My friend Matt Richardson (who created the awes.. er, terrific "Awesome Button" for MAKE) is part of a group from New York University's Interactive Technology Program that's launching an interactive window installation in Manhattan tonight called Bird on a Wire. Matt says, "The birds sit on the window until you call in, and they start flocking around. Not only that, but you can also hear the birds through the phone."
