Trafo Pop is an amazing group of wearable tech, lighting and cyclist enthusiasts in Berlin — cool combo, right?. We’ve covered some of their work before, but they’ve just created a dance performance that combines their wearables with light painting. It’s beautiful and reminds me of a real life version of those old Ipod commercials with the glowing silhouettes.
What’s exciting is that the group has created a software that allows for this real time show of light. So, no special effects or post production were needed to create this video. From the audience perspective, it’s fun to witness because there is a feeling that art is being created before your eyes, and in a moment it disappears again. It goes back to my reasoning of why sensors and interactivity are so exciting — they’re bringing us all back to the moment where we are reminded that we are experiencing life together.
Want to have your own fun moment? You can explore our guide on Light painting with NeoPixels and Arduino. Don’t forget to buy an extra FLORA and NeoPixels so you can make your own jacket, too. Then you will be tres Trafo Pop. You’re on your own for the dance lessons, though.
