IBM’s THINK Exhibit was an interactive technology exhibit at Lincoln Center that explores the role of technology in improving our daily lives and the world we live in. The exhibit included videos, touch screen maps, interactive media panels and mobile applications. The most visible element of the exhibit is the large digital wall, stretching 123 feet outside the converted parking garage of Lincoln Center on Columbus Avenue. The digital wall visualized real-time live streaming data from the surrounding areas including traffic on Broadway, solar energy use on the Upper West Side and air quality throughout Manhattan. The billboard-sized digital display showed how we use the world around us and illuminates on a local scale the many opportunities for changes to be made.
