Microsoft’s Cube: A Connected Dance Experience
The interactive art installation was unveiled at Seattle’s Decibel Festival
Microsoft recently partnered with the digital design firm Stimulant to launch a new project at Seattle’s Decibel Festival. The Cube is a large structure with digital displays that can be utilized as a canvas for creative composition and interactive art. It can also serve as a connected dance experience by displaying user’s avatars, which become linked by flowing digital ribbons.
The Cube is a new instrument for digital artwork that displayed a piece created by Stimulant when it was unveiled at the EMP Museum in Seattle as part of the festival. It is powered by five computers, visualizes sensor data from four Kinects placed inside, and also reacts in real-time to the beats of performers in the venue.
