Gadget Freak Al Linke has created a gadget that modifies wall art using LED matrix panels behind the art.
Al uses an Arduino and an Android smartphone as the major tools to add his own images to the wall art. The gadget will work with any type of painting. The images or words that show up through the LED matrix panel can be programmed in via the smartphone.
Al Linke created a way to add individual touches or statements to the art on your walls.
It's always interesting to me what clever engineering types can come up with just for the sheer pleasure of it. This is definitely something fun for people who want to personalize their wall decor.
