iRiS: Immediate Mobile Remote Interaction System [video]

Alexander Wiethoff of the Department for Informatics at LMU Munich (and a former Experientia intern – disclosure) has developed with the Univeristy of Saarbrücken a mobile device application that enables a radically new form of interaction with buildings that will be shown Sunday and Monday at Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria.

“By combining a recently developed mobile software application with the multimedia facade of the ARS Electronica building […] we developed two prototypes: in the first application, users can paint interactively on the building using touch input on the mobile device. In a second application, users are able to solve a jigsaw puzzle displayed on the facade.”
