New York artist Kyle M.F. Williams had the idea of a covering a razor scooter in Razr phones as a piece of sculpture. On eBay, he found a lot of 44 Razr phones from a seller who appeared to be a electronics repair shop. Williams assumed they would all be broken, or wiped, but when he got them he found that half of them still had texts, sexts, pics, and videos. So he took a couple days and figured out how to dump all the content from the phones onto his computer. Then, using Amazon.com's print on demand publishing service, he started selling a paperback book out of the images, titled Razr.
