This is interesting, an interactive pole dance experiment that uses strain gauges to change the lighting and colors by Daito Manabe + Motoi Ishibashi. The best part about this video is you get to see a couple Japanese hacker/maker/engineers test it out. Well, at least that was my favorite part.
Somewhat related, here’s a nice exchange about using a strain gauge from a scale to weigh a keg, clever!
