The I-Prompt?

In the course of dishing about  the "going-up" shenanigans of certain stage stars, Michael Riedel posits a new use for new technology:

Producers foresee a time when actors will be able to hold a little something in the palm of their hand that will flash their lines. Or perhaps they can steal a glance at their watches, in character of course, and get the line.
Finally, something useful the theatre can do with these gadgets!

What technological innovation do you find most exciting for the performing arts? This month, technology is the hot topic of the MADE HERE project.

Hmm, a little spammy, Anne. But given its possible interest to readers, I'll allow it.
