Students are using substances as common as aluminum foil to achieve special effects. The dance floor, which makes use of one-half mile of environmentally friendly ribbon cable, can be controlled wirelessly by remote clients, thus facilitating visual interactions that were not possible in previous designs.” [via] Link.

    As much as the summary makes it seem like washington university designed this whole thing, why dont you let everyone know they’re basically copying what MIT did almost a year ago. Hell, they’re even using the pcb boards that MIT is selling on their website! Washington university didnt even design their own circuit! What a ripoff. Why dont I go buy some electronics kit on the web, put it together, then make a website about it! Then I can get all the credit for it!
