Why not go and see Dancing In The Streets, installed in St Helen's Square next to Cafe Nero, 16 Davygate, York Y01 8RJ. It activates after nightfall, and is completely free.

You might want to wear warm clothing, but remember that the system picks up body heat mainly from your hands and face.

Back at the ranch, and a nice pint.

But I drank water!

SquareDance (clip)

The squares are one of the nicest parts of the installation to interact with. They're really responsive to individuals and a large mass of people on it makes a shifting, rippling surface.

Break That Dance! (clip)

A group of breakdancers were also supposed to perform at the launch, but they didn't have any music. Shame, 'cos the stuff they opened-up afterwards was pretty good, even though the cold flagstones weren't too friendly.

Upstairs in the coffee shop where the gubbins is installed, the walls are plastered with performance charts.

BodyBall (clip)

(viewed 590 times)
Even once the initial buzz had worn off and people went back inside to get more free booze there was always someone playing with the installation - especially BodyBall.

Here you can see the way that moving into the puck pushes it away.

I got beat by a little girl.

The Magic

The clip shows what the infra-red camera (military spec!) picks up, and how it turns that into the different elements to project in the Pong game. I keep calling it Pong, but it's more like football. Or handball. It's BodyBall, actually.

The Elastic Band goes crazy when it tries to connect between too many people!
