Interactivity V1.0

Since we started this project, we've talked about wanting to make The Wabash Lights an interactive light sculpture. With the financial support of Comcast and the tech-know-how of Chicago based company, Table Xi, we've finally been able to start developing that interactivity.

Below is a brief video that shows off two of the features we have in prototype; texting the lights to change the color and gamification of the lights.

In the coming months we are going to have some lights setup around Chicago so you can come and play with them! 

Let us know what you think - how excited are you to play a game on the L, not the train, but the actual structure?!?

      How fun to play with these lights! It will feel like you have a personal button to a part of the city itself.
