An interactive RFID-enabled art installation adorns the Schuylkill river in Philadelphia.

This past weekend, residents of Philadelphia got a chance to witness a stunning interactive lighting installation along the Schuylkill river. The RFID-enabled Light Drift was designed by Howeler + Yoon Architecture and was made up of a series of orb seats, that when used by people to sit, triggered the orbs floating in the river, thus illuminating and creating a light pattern between the land and water.
