Touch Wall

It’s a multitouch wall installation that tries to create a connection between the building and people passing by, by enabling them to interact with the window. People could have fun playing on the wall or another possible scenario is that they can also access information about the building in order to appreciate it’s history more.

In the first picture I stay in front of the menu which allows you to choose between different applications.

It was a little research project to play with and test different interaction possibilities developed by me in three days during Interactive Spaces course at CIID.

I was very surprised that people were amazed by simples interactions like the wall lighting up when you approach it. Experiencing a wall that can sense your presence was such a new thing to them and they were very engaged in the interaction.
