We’ve seen sound/light installations you can get inside, behind and around…this one, by SoftLab, you can get under, via coolhunting:
Commissioned by Sonos to create an interactive light and sound installation that responds in real-time to Sonos components. The installation is a grid of 600 fluorescent light tubes at varying heights and lengths to create an interior volume. Sound is gathered from Sonos components in 4 channels through Max/MSP and sent to processing where various behaviors are programmed to respond to the amplitude of the 4 channels. The state of each bulb is then sent to an array of arduino boards that control custom built chips with relays for each individual bulb. The installation uses light to spatial sound. It was a great opportunity to use two very spatial elements together to “build” an interactive but very paired down space. The piece will be at Sonos Studio in LA from July 25th to August 25th. The Crystal Method will perform in the installation at the opening, followed by performances by Washed out and Bleached throughout the month.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
