What is Wall Sense?
Wall Sense is a project that I have been think about since Spring 2010. I am seeking to make wallpaper / wall stickers / posters / anything that can be put up on a wall to be more interactive. Using a system of sensors and actuators, I want these things to encourage participation from their users.
Wallpaper/posters/wall stickers are everywhere. Therefore, they should be…
encourage an action from the user
perform some reaction engaging the human senses
sound: play music
sight: shine light
scent: emit smells
touch: feel interesting
What already makes wallpaper exciting?
- Fathead Stickers: live-size to gigantic stickers for walls
- 3D Wallpaper: Swedish designers Hanna Nyman and Kicki Edgren Nyborg have created eye-popping wallpaper
- Living Wall: The High-Low Tech Group have created a living wall using conductive & magnetic paint and paper electronics
