What if you could spray paint a wall with graffiti and erase it whenever you wanted with a click of a button? That’s exactly what the YR Grafitti Wall offers, except the spray paint can has no paint- just a beam of light (an IR light source with computer tracking – to be precise) and the wall is a giant digital screen.
Designed by interactive U.K. designers Lumacustics, the YR Wall is yet another step toward breaking down the walls between the digital world and the physical one. It also offers a benign alternative to spray painting real walls with real paint.
But this is more than just a toy, it is a new drawing tool. It offers new possibilities for creative expression. Let’s hope the people who use it transcend the urge to merely write their name in bold letters.
