London Design Festival
Just found out that an installation titled 'Outrace' shaped like a giant mechanical octopus will be taking over Trafalgar Square for this years London Design Festival in September. German designers, Clemens Welsshaar and Reed Kram, have created 6 robotic arms that will project lights into the air as they move. According to their website:
"Custom software developed by the designers will allow members of the public to temporarily take over the installation and render text input as light traces drawn by the synchronized mechanical tentacles."
Should be interesting!
