This Uncrate post about T-Post, a Swedish company that produces a wearable magazine every six weeks, is intriguing. A brief news article is printed on the inside of a T-shirt and a clever graphic is printed on the front. Often we think of multimedia journalism as computer-based but what better way to spread the news than to put it on a piece of clothing.

Mark Ecko’s interactive billboards that let anyone with a Bluetooth enabled cell phone interact with the display also have prospects in journalism. Imagine having an updated news ticker at a bus stop that the public can leave comments on in real time. These ideas are free so take them as you will, just cut me a check. (°o°)
