[REBLOG] Interactive Project: The Hello Wall.

The content below first appeared in the Thought Box blog on January 4, 2012. It was written by Deathgleaner. Click here for original post.

This is another example of a great project that uses social networking crowd-sourcing. I re-discovered this while looking through my Twitter following list. Check it out:

The project gathers @replies and mentions from Twitter, and displays an animation on a giant screen mounted on a building based on users’ tweets. (When it first came out, it was mounted in London, but now, it’s looking for a place to stay.)

How it works

You send an @reply to its Twitter account, @thehellowall, using a combination of the following commands:

  • circle
  • square
  • rectangle
  • triangle
  • shake
  • faster
  • slower
  • bigger
  • smaller
  • And HTML colors.

A command could look like this:

@thehellowall White circles bigger

The Wall will interpret your command, and display it instantly. It’s that simple!
