|Behold the "Sonic Light Bubble"in Wan Chai until December 9|
There was a giant bubble that is 6 metres in diameter that is transparent and yet there are circular plates made of LED lights placed all over it. People can press these plates to light them up while curious music is played.
It's designed by Australian design studio Eness, by award-winning interactive experience designer Nimrod Weis. It's part of a project sponsored by BODW or Business of Design Week City Programme.
The bubble is 6 metres in diametre and glows in various colours. You can't go inside it -- just around it, though it reacts to your touch on the LED light plates.
It's cool to watch, though I'm partial to works by interactive sculptor Jennifer Lewin, who makes interactive pads that light up when you step on them, much like creating ripples when you step in water.
Nevertheless it's a good way for kids to burn off energy, running around in circles and hitting the bubble...
"Sonic Light Bubble" is on now until December 9 at Comix Home Base, 7 Mallory Street, Wan Chai.
