Föhnseher (Seer of Warm Winds)
Modified Sanyo television, software, hardware.

Föhnseher rises from the scrap heap of analog TV. Unlike other televisions, Föhnseher captures and displays images downloaded by people on surrounding local wireless networks.

Other people's phones, laptops and tablet computers all become broadcast stations for this device, replacing the forgotten television towers of old.

See a short video here.

The name föhnseher derives from fernseher, the German word for television, and the föhn, a strange warm wind known to the south of Germany. The words have a very similar pronunciation.
