ON/OFF Wall Paint

01 / 20 / 2011

Some innovative thinking.

French design firm Quarks has created a tactile “switch,” a fusion of paint and embedded electronic mechanisms that enable a wall to act as an electronic switch.

APCI explains: The principle here is composed of paint and an electronic mechanism. Once the ON/OFF paint has been applied to the wall, a simple touch detects the contact desired by the user to control an electrical appliance. This “switch” is no longer positioned at an exact location only a few square centimetres in size but on the entire surface of the wall... ON/OFF may be combined with a lamp, an alarm, roller blinds or any electrically-controlled appliances. You can add another function to the unit such as a dimmer, timer or plug.

Enhancing the way we interact with our living space in a clean and subtle way. I want some!
