The App That Delivers Messages With a Dancer's Body

But then I tried it out, and I have to say that I love it. Not that I'll use it a lot or even that it's useful, but it's smart and something bordering on art.

You type in a message and a modern dancer named Valentina Scaglia dances it out. Here's a quick video of me playing with it (with apologies for my hair and shoddy camerawork). You can view the message I created here.
