The Coolest Wall of Bricks You Will Ever See

By David Richards | Sunday | 23/04/2006

If you are looking for something to really impress your friends how about some palimpsestual electronic architecture in your new home.

 The core technology behind the architecture is a wall of virtual bricks that allows one to pump images to the bricks of visitong guests.

The new technology called Brix is composed of a wall of virtual bricks and a camera that sees what is happening in front of the wall. When one approaches the wall, the surface reflects the image captured by the camera, in a thousand rectangular pixels. The image of the inter-actor slips onto the wall and after a few seconds, freezes as a photograph.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
