“The upper eight floors of the building were transformed in to a huge display by arranging 144 lamps behind the building’s front windows. A computer controlled each of the lamps independently to produce a monochrome matrix of 18 times 8 pixels.
During the night, a constantly growing number of animations could be seen. But there was an interactive component as well: you were able to play the old arcade classic Pong on the building using your mobile phone and you could place your own loveletters on the screen as well.”
how flippin’ cool is that!
here you can see the animations that were displayed on the building. My favorite is the fireworks display.
and you can download the software they used to run the light show. So you can set up your very own light display in your home
