A Place to Departure

Thanks to Maps Mania for another tipoff to an intriguing map related site.
This refers to a project called A Place to Departure

The installation has touch sensitive panels, and uses them in an intriguing way.
A Place to departure is an installation that allows people to interact remotely with each other by touch.
There were 2 windows: one in Beijing, China, and another in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The installations were apparently made only of glass and wood, but if you touched the equivalent point in the glass in Beijing and other person touch the same point in São Paulo simultaneously they would both feel that an interaction happened with a subtle vibration in the glass.

You can also download a location based generative pattern for your own location.
