Abstract

Messenger Frame is a physical notification device attached to MSN Instant Messenger. As a person appears online or changes his activity status, that person’s photo is lit up and a sound cue is generated. One can send a message directly to that person by touching his photo. At its heart is four PhidgetPowers that power the LCDs, as well as an Interface Kit that supports four conductivity sensors,  one behind each photo.
