Thanks a bunch to John for sending in this tip! John writes:
Here’s a Raspberry Pi project you might like to feature on the Adafruit blog. It’s a neat project created by YouTube Channel, Hacker House.
A 3D holographic audio visualizer with gesture control can definitely spice up your party and impress your friends. This display projects an image from a monitor down onto an acrylic pyramid, or “frustum”, which then creates a 3D effect. The display has audio visualizers which responds in real time to music being played from a SoundCloud playlist. The display has a gesture control interface board which can detect various hand motions without being touched. That means that swiping or turning your hand in the air will allow you to play the next song, pause, adjust the volume, switch the visualizer, and other cool functions.
The great thing is that the electronics hardware required is pretty minimum and we already wrote the code for you. You just need to set up the software and build a frame to put it all together.
