I visited the new New York Times building, in the lobby they have an amazing installation called “Moveable type” – it displays realtime and archived information from the NYTimes, it also makes manual typewriter, teletype machine and rotary phone noises while the vacuum florescent displays display away… Here are some photos – Link & The Moveable Type – installation @ the New York Times building – Link (video).
