PITTSBURGH, Pa. — Starting yesterday, visitors of the new August Wilson Center for African American Culture were treated to an exciting interactive art installation projected onto several first-floor windows. The installation allows visitors to text message their wants and needs onto a video projection, and vote for existing wants and needs as well. Steelicon Valley provided the interactive development expertise, including a custom motion detection system that allows observers to bounce orbs around the scene.

“We are proud to partner with North Shore-based Elliance to create the installation, which will be on display until mid-October” said Steelicon Valley Owner and lead developer Chris Natale. For people who cannot visit the installation in person, view it on the web:
