Pool Party Guests Swim With 65,000 Interactive Ping Pong Balls [Video]
Audio-reactive visuals create water experience for UrbanDaddy promotion.
Brooklyn-based art studio Red Paper Heart was recently asked by UrbanDaddy to create an interactive experience in water. They wanted to provide animations that guests could swim through but this posed a number of problems:

In researching a solution, we had to overcome the fact that projection doesn’t work on the surface of water, it becomes distorted if you project through it, and pool parties are notorious for more standing than swimming. To make something truly interactive, we needed to get everyone in that pool!
