transforming a room into a responsive, fluid architecture fed by ambient noise

How cool would it be if a room could physically change in response to events? I remember Bill Gates writing in his book ‘The Road Ahead’  about the house he built where sensors adjusted lights and displays in rooms according to who entered them and their previously stored preferences, but I’m not referring to that. That was published way back in 1995, in the days of Windows 95, before Windows ME, XP and the execrable Vista or the currently bad Windows 8. It was the year when the Internet really entered public consciousness. So a lot has happened in the nineteen years since then. Even so, the very thought of a “responsive fluid architecture fed by ambient noise”  is probably enough to turn Bill weak at the knees. Seeing it for oneself would have involved travelling to the Mapping Festival in Geneva earlier this year.  The festival looks really exciting, though. As usual, I’ll keep watching Create Digital Motion to see what’s unfolding.
