Interactive walls

A project started as a thesis project of italian Dario Buzzini has ended as an commercial product of interactive wallpaper. From the images and description from his site it seems that one can change the patterns of the wallpaper by touching it. Moving your hands leaves a trail to the wall.

The scoop does not give further details what technology is used to display the pattern on the wall, nor how the "wallpaper" is controlled. Whichever way this is made commercially available I would like to see it in real life!

Anyway I am very tempted to think that intelligent materials which allow the user to change the color and pattern electronically without repainting, will be THE thing in the not so far future.
