Here is the next generation of Floating Forecaster, the Floating Orchestra.

The Idea: 19 spheres come to life, as you become a supernatural conductor. Each ball becomes an orchestral instrument that increases in volume as it physically rises. You can create your own soundscape whilst the balls levitate and dance to the music.

This is currently controlled via the touch screen of an iPhone, however, it may soon be naturally controlled with your movement.

It’s proven to be hugely successful in engaging the public of all ages. A fun and engaging experience, that mixes digital technology with the physical world. There’s something intrinsically captivating about a levitating sphere and to have direct control over those spheres is a magical experience.

This revised version of the Floating Forecaster was most recently exhibited in Brighton Dome and filmed in the studio.

Music: Benny Goodman – Sing Sing Sing
