Telemegaphone is a 23-foot loudspeaker of a Norwegian mountain. The loadspeaker receives phone calls and projects them out over the lovely and remote village of Dale.
The project (which just ended due to deer hunting season) powered the speakers using the wind--on calm days no calls received!
From the FAQ:
Some people complained that the volume was too loud for sleeping with open windows during calm, warm summer nights. After adjusting the volume slightly, others complained that the volume was now too weak.
One woman said: "This is great. I will sit on my porch with a cup of tea and listen to the world."
Another woman said: "We like things a little bit crazy here in Dale."
Expect many more opinions from Dale-ites to be published here in September.
