Be captivated with this unique musical contraption where you can control the movement and sound of each floating sphere to conduct your own symphony.

A new iPhone application allows users to simulate the experience of being an orchestra conductor by controlling floating ping pong-like balls. The Floating Orchestra app works alongside a contraption where 19 spheres are levitated using the touch screen on an iPhone. Each sphere corresponds to a specific instrument, and every time a specific ball rises, there is also an increase in volume of the instrument.

The app and the music device is developed by Poietic Studio, a London-based company that specializes in ‘interactive and spatial design, art and engineering.' The Floating Orchestra demonstrate the interaction of digital technology with the physical world.
