Dutch designers Trapped in Suburbia began a series of experiments that looked at the intersection of digital and analog techniques, which has finally come full circle with an installation that incorporates key elements from their previous demonstrations.


The Sound Poster 3.0 will set off an explosion whenever a passerby presses a specific point on the paper flyer. It uses gunpowder ink and a capacitive touch sensor to go about its explosive nature, adding a bit of tactile excitement into traditional art.

See how the designers ended the series with a bang below.
