Picture Chat
I made a little free iPad app called Picture Chat. In it, two people (sharing the same iPad) talk not by speaking... but by typing any of the over 500 pictures to form picture sentences. In this video, you can actually see two of the robots (that come with the program) automagically talking to each other -- see robot communication weirdness ensue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBRmL7YXCZ8

That art is awesome and the concept is awesome too. I love the fact that the low overhead let's people do art like that and release it.

It would be excellent to have an iphone version that you could use over distance with someone. Love the artwork too

I noticed an initial tendency to select symbols in characteristic English (subject) (verb) (predicate) pattern before realizing that it could be used in a more free-form way. I wonder if something like this could be (or already is) used as a portable communications tool by people who develop aphasia due to stroke or brain injury.
