If talking or even texting seems a bit like hard work, you might be interested in Pix, a visual communicator you can programme to display moving pictures, images and text.
Communication with this strange circular object is through the 177 small LEDs. Any combination of text and images can be input to the communicator via software on a PC. Create and edit your own text and images, or you can share existing Pix code with other owners via the net.
If you’re out and about, infrared communication between Pix owners means you can communicate in your own special way. In fact, you’ll probably need someone else to have one or you’ll probably just look a bit odd with your coloured disc!
If you want to know more, check out the Pix website. You can pick up a Pix for around £39.
