Well, this looks like fun -- something San Francisco should have (that is, if the majority its residents approved of anything other than Diego Riveraesque murals.) The 88, a luxury highrise in San Jose (how adorable!) has a piece of public art outside its building, one that you can control using your mobile communication device.

The piece, created by Jim Conti and found at San Fernando and Second Streets in Downtown San Jose, is called Show Your Stripes. Because it contains lots of neon-ish stripes in it. According to CBS 5, it works like this.

To try it out, first call 408-287-0128. After the tone, enter any three digit combination including "#" and "*". Then, press "0" and hang up.

Here are some of the codes:
*25 - Xmas Dance
*14 - Valentine's Day Beat
*88 - The 88
*** - Ship's Wheel
168 - Green with Red Bolt
182 - Happy
193 - Rainbow Chase
