The core technology behind the architecture is a wall of virtual bricks that allows one to pump images to the bricks of visitong guests.
The new technology called Brix is composed of a wall of virtual bricks and a camera that sees what is happening in front of the wall. When one approaches the wall, the surface reflects the image captured by the camera, in a thousand rectangular pixels. The image of the inter-actor slips onto the wall and after a few seconds, freezes as a photograph.
So there you have it Brix, a new form of palimpsestual electronic architecture.
