International Dance Party

Une discothèque compacte et mobile. Aucun DJ extérieur requis...

FR
La machine à dance party se présente comme un grand « flight case » tout équipé : un véritable sound-system de 600 Watts, des rampes de lumières psychédéliques, des effets laser et même une machine à fumée ! A mesure que les spectateurs se mettent à danser, la machine est instantanément reboostée, les décibels et les effets vont crescendo… Après la fête, la machine redeviendra aussitôt une simple caisse de transport.

The interactive machine International Dance Party is a complete plug ‘n’ play party in a box. NO EXTERNAL DJ REQUIRED !!! The machine comes as a large, non-suspicious looking flightcase. Internally, it is equipped with cutting edge radar sensing technology, an ear blasting state of the art 600W sound system, tons of psychedelic light and laser effects, and even a professional grade fog machine. Through its dance activity radar, the International Dance Party detects and evaluates motion input from surrounding people in realtime. Several sophisticated transforming mecha- nisms let the flightcase turn into a powerful and boosting party machine, once the visitors start to dance within the machine’s range of perception. The audience controls the complexity of the generated music and the intensity of the light effects directly by the energy of its dance action. When there is no audience, or when the audience is not active enough, the machine stops its performance and transforms back into a transport crate.
