Giovanni Cannata's Light Appliances concept is an unique attempt to bring internet services to those who lack a computer and the desire to own one. The system is built on a series of information appliances, each dedicated to a particular function. (Email, phone calls, radio, etc.) Using a one-button remote control called the "dropper", you can move pieces of information from one activated appliance to another.

Light Appliances allows you to browse photos in a digital picture frame by caressing the frame's corner and to call the friend displayed in the photo by dragging and dropping the contact into a phone using the "dropper", or sending him a handwritten e-mail by dragging the contact into an e-mail appliance instead.

Very cool.
