graphics on a windmill

This is the Siemens superstar, a project by German multimedia artist Michael Pendry. It is basically a wind turbine with 9.000 programmable RGB LEDs integrated into it. The superstar was installed last month in Munich, a city that wants to run on sustainable resources by 2025. I'd love to see these graphics coupled to a realtime digital datasource, so it becomes sustainable plus decorative plus informative.

See it in action here:
