Deep Screen: Muti Randolph

Not a who lot of info regarding technical details but…. Looks like a programmable 3-dimensional grid of LEDs……Creates interesting and surprisingly complex¬† visuals. http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/videos/muti-randolph–2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsEeLDLJbeo

Flyfire: SENSEable City
