Milan – This week’s Innovate shows how projection-mapping could turn the built environment into an interface sooner than we first thought.
Visitors to the installation received a digital guide of the Milan Expo in the form of a simple piece of cardboard called the SeedBoard. Through projection-mapping, people could interact with the device using spatial movement, such as lifting the cardboard.
‘NO_THING transcends the boundaries of media use, which so far have been defined by conventional, haptic interfaces, such as screens and buttons,’ says Peter Redlin, creative director at Milla & Partner.
