In the Immersion Room in the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York “visitors can tap into the museum’s vast collection of wall coverings and wallpapers, and project their designs onto an entire room of blank walls.”
Visitors of the museum get a pen “paired with a unique URL on the visitor’s ticket, and as guests pass through different galleries they can touch the tip of their pen to wall text next to objects they find interesting, or inspiring. The pen then stores those selections. … what follows will be a free-flowing, open-ended experience: with their pen, visitors can download all their selected items into a screen, and begin designing.”
