Microsoft’s Entertainment and Devices division, moved into four brand new state-of-the-art buildings on the Redmond campus. Each of the four building’s atrium feature a three-story high interactive installation, designed by MODE Studios utilizes a transparent LED system called curveLED making it possible to both see and see through the display. The interactivity of the installation comes from sensors both inside and outside the building that analyzes traffic patterns, weather and thermal patterns inside the building.
