Pixels for the People

Seb is known for large scale installations and events that bring people together using technology, like his interactive digital fireworks, and glowstick voting systems.

In this session he talks about his most recent project - PixelPhones, making good use of the audience and stretching the wi-fi network to its limits! The software connects to all the smart phones, turning each member of the audience into a single pixel of a huge pulsating display.

He then explore how PixelPhones can create unique events where the audience can truly become part of the performance, and the challenges involved in scaling this system up to 1000s of audience members.

Bring your iPhones, and Flash enabled Android devices! Oh and probably worth charging them up beforehand. :-)
