Timelive | 23 May, 2014 12:26

New York University Student Peiqi Su has created an animatronic wall of 3D printed penises as an art project.

Beautiful! from Peiqi SU on Vimeo.

Apparently it can be set to respond to viewer's movements, or the stockmarket according to technology news website io9.

"The penis is so different! This is my initial motivation, to study one of the oldest and probably the most attractive thing that humans interact with," Su said in her official description of the work.

"The Penis Wall is made up of 3D printed penises that each have six segments driven by servo motors. Equipped with an ultrasonic distance sensor, each unit can respond to a viewer's movements. Moreover, the Penis Wall can also be used as a display to represent data, for instance, fluctuations in the stock market," she said.
