Bottle wall (no sound) from Alex Beim on Vimeo.

Organic LEDs? Interactive visual fabrics? Bah. The future is BOTTLES, man. Alex Beim sends along this lovely-looking display made from bottles illuminated by LED lights, which makes for the Official CDM Saturday Diversion Post. (Um… yeah, the first and last of those.)

The real lesson: if you can shine light through it, you can do lovely stuff. Looks really purty. Thanks, Alex!

    That is about one of the coolest things ever. And I'm not just saying that. This time, I really mean it. You're the one I really love, ba-

    Erm, sorry. ;-)

    In all seriousness, that is a really good idea, and it's amazingly effective. I could see scaling this idea up to an entire "wall of bottles" behind a band for an amazing stage show.

    We used a grid of 23 x 11 = 253 bottles for this.

    Thank you for the link!
