Watch it wiggle

Pretty tough to top this one. University of Minnesota recent graduates Amber Sausen and John Steingraeber surprised us at a recent graduation pig roast by pulling out this one-quarter scale OSWall "app" made out of orange Jell-O! The best app idea yet? Could be.

In related news, we'll be posting the results of our OSWall "Design Your Own App" Competition soon, so check back.  Three winners were recently on display in New York at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery's "Envelop{e}s" Exhibition

OSWall featured in "Envelop{e}s" Exhibition at Pratt Manhattan Gallery

We want to thank everyone who attended the opening of "Envelop{e}s" at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery last week on Thursday, March 4th. The exhibit was curated by Associate Professor of Architecture at Rice University, Christopher Hight. There was an impressive turn out of students, academics, and local professionals. We were honored to be included with such a sophisticated, thoughtful, accomplished group of designers and architects. 

Also, thank you to those of you who entered the "OSWall Design Your Own App" competition. We ultimately picked three winners whose app strategies were displayed alongside our prototype in the exhibit. Look for a blog post later this week along with a special section of our website that will feature the winning designs.

Finally, a HUGE thank you to our good friends Dave Hultman from Engineering at the University of Minnesota and Susanna Hohmann from Terrazign in Portland for their tireless efforts in helping us pull this off. It would have never happened without them.

Check out some photos of the installation here.

We will have a new section on our site under the "Prototypes" heading featuring diagrams, drawings, and photos of this latest version of OSWall.

The lecture was well-attended by students, colleagues, and interested folks from the Twin Cities community. The Walker has already posted the lecture here, so if you missed it, don't fret...you can check still check it out. Thanks to all of you who attended and a big thanks to Andrew Blauvelt for inviting us.
