Arduino Powered Floating Black Ball Is Both Creepy And Cool (video)


Francesco Tacchini, a Royal College of Art grad student, and Julinka Ebhardt and Will Yates-Johnson of Design Products have created a very creepy and cool black floating ball project that is powered by the Arduino platform.

The Black floating ball, balloon was filled with enough helium to be able to lift its components and hover, reaching-neutral buoyancy and weighs120g. Watch the freaky creation in action after the jump.

Arduino Floating Black Ball

The Arduino Black floating ball project equipped with a battery-powered Arduino Adafruit Wave Shield in order to record and playback audio on-the-fly through a small speaker situated inside the Black ball.

“A floating orb that explores and manipulates transitional public spaces with particular acoustic properties. By recording and replaying these ambient sounds, the hovering sphere produces a delayed echo of human activity.”
