Helen Evan & Heiko Hansen have created a wall virtual bricks, where every brick is a pixel. They site describes it best: "screen as architecture: every brick as a pixel, architectural form for self portrait"
Implications - The idea of virtual images is no longer just confined to the computer screen. The advancement of technology has allowed for high resolution imagery to be projected onto walls and to take it one step further, most have interactive capabilities. Musicians such as Nine Inch Nails have used this for visual purposes before. How tech companies will translate this type of technology for more of a practical use in the home outside of entertainment will be interesting.
Virtual Bricks by Helen Evan & Heiko Hansen
1. Virtual Brick Walls - Advancements in technology have made it possible for high resolution imagery to be projected onto walls, allowing for interactive capabilities.
2. Interactive Interior Design - Technology that allows for interactive virtual images to be projected onto walls has the potential to disrupt the traditional interior design industry.
3. Pixel-based Architecture - Virtual bricks, where every brick is a pixel, have the potential to disrupt the architecture industry by allowing for greater design flexibility and experimentation.
1. Entertainment - Virtual images projected onto walls with interactive capabilities have already been used for visual purposes in concerts, and could become more prevalent in the entertainment industry.
2. Interior Design - The ability to project interactive virtual images onto walls could disrupt the traditional interior design industry and open up new opportunities for creativity.
3. Architecture - Pixel-based architecture, using virtual bricks as pixels, has the potential to disrupt the way buildings and structures are designed and built.
