Now all we need is a miniature servo that moves the arms and has the semaphore spell out: "Help, I'm being held hostage in a Chinese fortune cookie factory."

I think these are fantastic. Flavorful, clever, evocative, and a genuinely interesting scenario objective.

The semaphore symbols look a lot like the dancing men from the Sherlock Holmes story by the same name.

At one point in The Count of Monte Cristo, the Count bribes a semaphore operator to modify the message he receives, if you'd like a relatively painless description of the Spain to Paris line in operation.

There is a terrific study of semaphore operations in the alternate history novel Pavane. It's based on the Armada winning and Elizabeth being assassinated.
