About Tal

Born in the mid 2000s, Tal is Billy's first phone, in the age of exponential growth in personal device, Tal has been repurposed as the "Oracle". Placed inside a highly secured chamber, when the owner buys a new phone, Tal helps sense the "Vibe" of their relationship, visioning how the owner's live will be with his/her/their new device.

Working with Tal

Step 1: Place your new phone beside Tal. (Preferably to its right.)

Step 2: Put your right hand on your new phone.

Step 3: Put your left hand on top of Tal's chamber.

Step 4: Wait for 1~2 seconds and see what Tal has to say. (Probably some corny movie quotes.)
