Video teaser of Wii Spray, a technical experiment by grad students Martin Lihs and Frank Matuse at the Bauhaus University Media Department in Germany. The Nintendo Wii game platform and Adobe Flash have been employed as tools to develop the Wii Spray idea. It’s fascinating and fun. Now in its “second edition,” Wii Spray has implications beyond merely allowing graffiti to be expressed interactively and digitally or offering ideas for new Nintendo Wii games. It’s broader potential is for interface design and technology in general and how the essential hardware — game controllers and screens, etc. — will evolve for creating and consuming content. In this case, it’s glowing, electronic graffiiti created by a fake spray can with a Wii Remote embedded in the can’s form factor.
