#dBcube for the Microsoft Cube

Overview

#dBcube is a four-sided digital dance experience that connects dancers on opposite sides of Microsoft’s Cube with dynamic virtual ribbons. Dancers and their friends can see themselves in a whole new way, and interact with dancers on the other sides of the sculpture that they might not know. When dancers arrive on opposite sides, their avatars link at the hands with flowing ribbons, turning their individual dance moves into flowing and twisting shapes, and creating collaborative visual expressions as they move along with the music. #dBcube visualizes a collection of sensor data from the four Kinects in the Cube, reacts in real-time to the beats of performers in the venue, and cycles through a variety of virtual environments as the evening progresses.
