Paint the Town Red with iRiS

The iRiS (Intuitive/iPhone Remote Interaction System) allows you to paint a multi-media facade on your favorite building.  Assuming it’s hooked up with a psychedelic projector.   But hey, we’re talking art here, not convenience.

The gamer in me wants it to be a game of Tetris on that building, but I’m sure that’s the most obvious way to utilize it.

The beauty of this is that its projected luminance can be seen by anyone, regardless if they have a smartphone or not.  But those with one get a remote controlled Lite-Bright building to play upon, making the others envious.  It’s easy to imagine this kind of art in an AR space and modifiable by anyone, though not everyone has an artist’s eye.  To each his own.
