The tile above was the prototype we envisioned would be placed throughout the Hill District community and would trigger the projection that would reflect the building/business that existed before and its history. It was made by using the laser cutter for engraving the acrylic and the wooden component was fabricated with hand tools. 

Interfacing with the Technology

The small wires running out the side plug into GPIO pins on a Raspberry Pi 3. By pressing the tile/button down, two sheets of conductive aluminum make contacting, completing a circuit, these components are covered by the wood and acrylic. Essentially, this is a large button. The script for this operation is below:
