We’re in Miami this week to report on Art Basel! While here, we were able to attend a few different press preview events including Design Miami and Art Miami. Easily one of the highlights of Design Miami was seeing this incredible exhibit put on by their exclusive car sponsor, Audi.
Audi teamed up with Danish architect Bjarke Ingels to bring a “digital street” to life. Called “Urban Future,” this interactive, 3D installation was made up of 2,000 LED lights and used hanging X-Box Kinect modules to track movement on the floor.
The beautifully lit stage invited viewers to step right onto it and see the Audi A2 concept car up close and personal. Presented for the first time the United States, the A2 first debuted at the Frankfurt auto show a few months ago, in September. The all-electric vehicle was a beauty both inside and out. It not only has a built-in internet connection but also rear fog light lasers that project a warning triangle on mist behind the car when visibility is compromised. (DId we also mention that it has a self-driving mode?)
