Autonomous Wallpaper at Smart Space

On Dec 11 Autonomous Wallpaper was shown as a demo at Smart Space by Heidi Harman in Herning, Denmark. This one day conference focused on smart materials, smart living and smart green, and attracted an audience consisting of architects, designers and researchers. Autonomous wallpaper exemplifies a future wallpaper that creates a dynamic flower pattern from images that are sent by bluetooth (e.g. images taken and sent by a mobile phone). Currently, this is installed as a projection on a wall, complemented with an ultrasonic sender. This way, the users can physically point to the wall to "place" one or several flowers that will grow from their picture.
