Wood / fiber animal lamps. Pricey but could be an icon for high-end playroom or maker space.

Interesting light fixtures for creative / imaginative space -children’s gallery, maker, etc.
Google NYC has a new interactive wall using 5,880 arcade buttons as the interface and the result is pretty cool! The great thing is the open-source software is available for anyone to play with (and I think we should do that if we aren’t already). Check out the video and the link for the “anypixel.js” software below!
Woohoo, first post of the new year! I saw this exhibit and immediately thought it was something within our capabilities. I am very much a lover of music and sound and to blend that with endlessly variable light combinations I think makes for a fairly simple but very satisfying visitor experience. This type of thing could possibly even be built into our typical RGB color blending exhibit perhaps. Slick casework too!
I’ve always loved this technique -use a single point source light within an enclosure to form a giant lantern that projects patterns into the space. The scale, simplicity and environmental nature of the effect are what make this piece work – one of those experiences that benefits from installation as a single, sculptural gesture. Wonder what potential there is for visitors to change the designs (colors? movement?) interactively and thus manipulate the patterns on the walls in real-time?
The back half of the video focuses on the final installation…
Interesting choice of materials for a highly technical and electronic interactive. Something almost otherworldly about it. They are using Kinect and getting pretty precise motions, at last for the video.
Click on image below for video. Really fun (and a little creepy) to watch.
