Painting A Building With Your Smartphone

If you happen to find yourself at the ARS Electronica centre in Linz, Austria thinking, "that facade could do with a bit more colour," you're in luck—a special smartphone application lets passersby paint the building in real time.

There are actually two applications, developed jointly by the University of Saarbr├╝cken, Germany and University of Munich, Germany: one that lets users paint the building block by block with a colour wheel on their phone, and another let them solve a huge, building-size jigsaw puzzle on its facade. You better hope your aesthetic sensibilities are as good as you always thought they were. [Project iRiS]
