Podium Wall

Via Information Aesthetics comes word of the Podium Wall.

The Wall, to be located at 7 World Trade Center in NYC, recognizes pedestrians as they walk next to the building, projecting a blue light on the wall. The light is a vertical beam 7 stories tall which the artists claim can be seen from Freedom Park. It works by camera recognition, and the picture that I've linked to above is a web version that shows you what it will look like, with your mouse acting as a pedestrian.

Designed by James Carpenter Design Assoc., Kinecity worked on the interactive element.

This is an interesting project, seamlessly integrated into the building design. Interactivity is becoming ever more common in everyday life!
