IRIS by HYBE 

Interactive installation is grid of transparent LCDs which display halftone and circular patterns whose display can emulate it’s viewers. A week ago, I covered a New Media exhibition in Seoul called ‘The Da Vinci Ideas Exhibition’ and was intrigued by this piece, hoping there would be a video of it. Well, the brilliant Creative Applications discovered it, which you can watch in the embed below:

Created by Korena collective HYBE, IRIS is a media canvas with matrix of conventional information display technology, that is a monochrome LCD.Through the phased opening and closing of circular black liquid crystal, IRIS can create various patterns and control the amount (size) of passing lights.

intellipaper and swivelcard sound like generic sales pitch terminology and usb business cards aren’t new but the remote access capability of these cards is a real step forward, that and the built in analytics and what looks like a rewardingly tactile product is probably why it has more than 4 times it’s target kickstarter goal of $10k with 30 days still to go.

An interesting product but with so many features similar or already present in existing tech like kinect or leap motion we’ll have to see how ractiv’s touch+ fares in the marketplace.
