Six-Forty by Four-Eighty is a colorful, interactive lighting installation by Zigelbaum + Coelho design studio. Consisting of fascinating magnetic tiles, the installation creates impressive light patterns by responding to touch.

These clever little tiles actually communicate with each other, with specialty software installed that allows the exploration of new ways for humans and computers to interact. I'm wondering if Zigelbaum + Coelho will spark a technological revolution.

Implications - The technology of today has allowed humans and computers to interact on a whole new basis. Touch screens and automated responses from certain products have had people demanding similar products, sparking huge competition from various tech companies. This demand will inspire businesses to come up with more inventive products that will satisfy consumers and allow them to stay ahead.
