Old Navy decided to put technology in service of selfies and celebrate its 20th birthday. The Selfiebration machine consists of a giant balloon board that reproduces your selfie. How is this possible?
People send their selfie to the Selfiebration machine through Twitter, inserting a birthday wish and the hashtag #Selfiebration. The machine includes 16 modular balloon boxes interconnected with almost 5 miles (!) of wiring. The machine detects the aforementioned hashtags and inflates the balloons simultaneously, rasterising the image, reproducing the selfie received and transformating the balloon board into a huge display wall.
Right now, the Selfiebration machine can process up to 2 selfies per minute. You can check out more details in the video below.
