Paintable LED Wall

2,800 LEDs, individually accessible, RGB LEDs to be exact.  This wall allows users to use special paint brushes to paint each individual LED pixel.  It’s alittle crazy though, especially looking at the back of it.

The wall is made up of individual RGB tea lights that can be programmed different colors based on the feedback from an IR sensor.  Jared Ficklin thought it would be cool to turn take those IR sensors, and embed them into paint brushes so that users would have get to apply the colors directly to the wall.  I think it’s a neat idea, but you really need to step back to fully appreciate the low resolution display.

Here’s the back of the wall:
