This project attempts to physically represent the amount of “rock” at a concert. It uses an Arduino and pressure sensors on the floor to measure the movement of the audience. It takes that data and creates a visual representation of the “rock” factor.
An idea popped out of Radio 1 Interactive a while ago. This would be a device that measures ‘rock’ – how much the band and the crowd are rocking at a gig – called The Rockterscale. It would display the amount of rock at the venue and on the web in real-time, maybe even showing it at other gigs and encouraging bands and crowds to out-rock each other. But, until now, no-one has really tried building it. But we were due another hardware hacking session so we decided to build the Rockterscale.
