Sony Ericsson's Hopper Invasion event featured a real-space visualization of the online activity associated with the event.

In collaboration with Sony Ericsson’s Hopper Invasion campaign this past September in the UK, the interaction designers at Tinker.it constructed a grid of inflatable ‘hoppers’ that were each connected to air pump devices. Fans of the event were encouraged to use the hashtag #prompt while tweeting what creative things they would like to do if they had hundreds of hoppers; these tweets triggered the inflation of the hopper grid, resulting in a real-space visualization of online activity associated with the event.
