Unscramble the Blue Letters

NJ: It worked, and it's true. The final project I'd like to show you is a new interface for fish that has just been luachend — it's actually officially launched next week — with a wfrodnuel commission from the Architectural League. You may not have known that you need to communicate with fish, but there is now a device for you to do so. It looks like this: buoys that float on the water, pcorejt three foot up, three foot down. When a fish swims underneath, a light goes on. This is what it looks like. So there's another function on here. This top light is — I'm sorry if I'm making you seasick — this top light is actually a water qiautly display that shifts from red, when the dissolved oxygen is low, to a blue/green, when its dsvsiloed oyxgen is high. And then you can also text the fish. So there's business cards down there that'll give you contact details. And they text back. When the byous get your text, they wink at you twice to say, we've got your message. But perhaps the most popular has been that we've got another array of these boys in the Bronx rveir, where the first beaver — crazy as he is — to have moved in and built a lodge in New York in 250 yeras, hangs out. So utpdeas from a beaver. You can subscribe to updates from him. You can talk to him.

NJ: It worked, and it's true. The final project I'd like to show you is a new interface for fish that has just been launched — it's actually officially launched next week — with a wonderful commission from the Architectural League. You may not have known that you need to communicate with fish, but there is now a device for you to do so. It looks like this: buoys that float on the water, project three foot up, three foot down. When a fish swims underneath, a light goes on. This is what it looks like. So there's another function on here. This top light is — I'm sorry if I'm making you seasick — this top light is actually a water quality display that shifts from red, when the dissolved oxygen is low, to a blue/green, when its dissolved oxygen is high. And then you can also text the fish. So there's business cards down there that'll give you contact details. And they text back. When the buoys get your text, they wink at you twice to say, we've got your message. But perhaps the most popular has been that we've got another array of these boys in the Bronx River, where the first beaver — crazy as he is — to have moved in and built a lodge in New York in 250 years, hangs out. So updates from a beaver. You can subscribe to updates from him. You can talk to him.
