Project Blinkenlights

Some office buildings in Paris have been transformed into gigantic computer screen / art displays by using windows as the light source.

In celebration of the Nuit Blanche art festival in Paris, Project Blinkenlights has transformed Tower T2 of the Bibliothèque nationale de France into what is claimed to be the world’s largest computer screen.

The 520 pixel display, called Arcade, consists of a matrix of 20 x 26 of the building’s windows — resulting in a giant computer screen having an area of 3370 square meters.

And, it’s interactive!

The system has been configured so that people can play games on the building by calling it up from their mobile phones. One popular game is sure to be the all-time favorite pixel puzzle game, Tetris, which can be played using nothing but a mobile phone!

You can watch these creative, fun displays in real time! (see links in article).
