A project that entails a Dance floor that reacts to sound and body temperature, creating a dynamic and immersive experience for users. The dance floor features DMX lights embedded in its surface, which will change in color and brightness based on the input variables of sensors installed on the floor.
The sound sensors will detect loudness, enabling the lights to react to users' voices as well as music playing in the room. The temperature sensors will detect changes in body temperature, enabling the lights to change color based on the heat generated by users' dancing.
The dance floor is made from a round wooden structure with a cut-out pattern and two layers of matt see-through plexiglass on top. The DMX lights are embedded inside the structure, creating a seamless and integrated lighting effect. The lighting effects are divided into four stages, each with a unique set of colors and patterns.
Overall, the dance floor project represents an exciting fusion of art, technology, and design. We believe that the innovative approach to interactive lighting will create a unique and unforgettable experience for users, enhancing the atmosphere of any dance event or party.
