It is great to see designers exploring new materials as a means of visual presentation. Todays wallpaper is tomorrows touchscreen display. There are far reaching possibilities for these meta-materials – and that is power consumption awareness. The more we use LEDs the greater the reduction in energy consumption. Let’s face it, a large proportion of touch & display technology are power hungry, and offer little more in the way of interactivity, than a static analogue sign. It may be time to tap into the creative unconcious to ease our conscience.
