If you find yourself at the PETRONAS Twin Towers, in between the two towers you can find presence of PETRONAS Motorsports right at concourse with the two magnificent F1 cars displayed by the entrance.
Liquid and Metal interactive wall, take the escalator from Concourse near Tower 1
Working your way to the entrance of Tower 1, then take the escalator down a level, this is where you’ll find the huge Interactive Wall by the Petronas Twin Towers Sky Bridge Visitor’s Center.

The wall is at least the size of my room, and the screen displays a mesmerizing flow of liquid and metal in a way that reminds me of WinAmp visualizations.
Kinect is the technology used to make the wall interactive
Walking pass the Interactive Wall, and you’ll notice something changes on the display.
It moves. And if you wave your hands a bit, and it moves accordingly. Neat.
Turns out, the secret is the usage of Kinect technology that senses movements of visitors standing in front of the screen (Hence the name interactive wall bah).
you push, I swing, lets make this happen!
If you find yourself at or near KLCC, head to the Twin Towers Sky Bridge Visitor’s Center and gave the wall a try. The trick is to have two person standing at both sides pushing liquid and metal together, and if you get it just right, mercury swirls and one of 5 animations will appear – mechanic heart, diamond grille, piston, shark, or headlight.
It’s like playing with your shadow on the wall when you’re a little boy/girl. Except this one actually reacts to your every movement. Have it a go with your friends 😀
