Beacon tracks your position and sheds light on the room

Craft & Design

Here’s an update on an earlier post we did here about the “Beacon” installation currently on display until February 20th at the LightWave festival in Dublin, Ireland. “Beacon” is a kinetic light installation that tracks visitors movements through the space. The project was built with existing industrial products, custom hardware to control the motorized lights, and thermal imaging cameras to track visitors moving between them on the floor. The tracking was implemented with a bespoke control system to coordinate an interactive experience for visitors. Check out the video above to see it in action.
