Emotion is created by motion

The 3 kinnect cameras linked to over 28,000 addressable LEDs via the traxon control equipment, allows for a multiude of movement driven animations and effects.  Alongside this are pre-programmed animations such as sunrise and sunset effects, a sound to light waveform and a matrix style video. Each of the three earth tubes can also receive twitter messages to display words and animations.  Finally the lighting can be used for static images to support and promote worldwide events.
