Rave in a Box: Machine Replicates Fast Moving Glowstick Dancing

Cosmic Hand Dance Actualization Machine – HD

The Cosmic Hand Dance Actualization Machine was built by Nicholas Rubin as part of an Introduction to Physical Computing class where he wants to explore the “therapeutic and meditative benefits of observing “psychedelic” imagery” by giving the user interactive control of the lightshow. Or a rave in a box (or bowl I guess). The machine consists of a dome with IR sensors that allow the user to control the image by simply moving his hand around freely within the dome. Rave on!
