random studio: how can screens be more tactile?

Random Studio in Amsterdam put a couple small experiments on Medium and Instagram that are interesting: Marrying fiber optics to LED screens and using LED screens below water. See the Instagram posts below.

I feel like I’ve seen the combination of digital screens + fiber optics before, but I honestly can’t place where. Regardless, it could be a beautiful, sensual surface experience in service of ambient communications.

The water reminds me of the massive Wynn Casino Lake of Dreams project, in which 4000 underwater spot lights, plus miles of aeration tubes, turn a lake into a magical, volumetric projection surface.
