Eerily organic, “The Cloud” is a newly released project from MIT’s Mobile Experience Lab. It’s a megalithic sculpture for the modern age that responds to human touch and proximity. Located in downtown Florence, The Cloud can vividly express “emotion and behaviors” using light and sound. It’s constructed of carbon glass and uses hundreds of sensors and over 15,000 individually addressable optical fibers to interact with anyone near it. Watch the video here.
