Smart magnets
Fridge magnets tinker with poetry. "Each fridge magnet consists of 16-character liquid crystal display, rather than a magnetic strip with a printed word, Proske says. The magnets can randomly generate a word, categorise that word (as a noun, verb, adjective or adverb) and transmit the category to any words they are placed next to. As you compose a poem, placing words in grammatical order, the magnets communicate with each other to learn the grammar rules you are using. Once they are 'trained', the magnets can change the words they are displaying to substitute words that don't fit the established grammar rules, like an autocorrect function. "
