Video: Projekt P.I.W.O. 3, apartment building as light show

As captured by Engadget Polska, the latest performance of Projekt P.I.W.O., a hacker group that turns buildings into light shows. Not a new concept, of course, but P.I.W.O. is really good at it.

    Can anyone read Polish? I’m curious to know exactly how they did this. What were the light sources in each apartment? How were they all networked and controlled?

    Cole, that reminds me of people using flash to take pictures of creatures in aquariums. They just end up with pictures of themselves holding a camera in front of their face.

  3. Cole says:

    I hate seeing people use flashes on their cameras for that. The thing you are taking a picture of is emitting light, and you are only going to wash it all out and make it look like a disposable camera by using the flash. It disrupts the scene fore everyone else observing too.
    I like the variety of games they play, and the speed of colors.

    Too bad they are not-so-good at using a tripod and putting a microphone near the PA speaker…

    Other than that… Very nice!
