Discontrol is a reinterpretation of the classic disco ball. It combines a suspended mirror ball surrounded by an acrylic ring of LEDs and a glove. To control remotely the disco ball, the user has to wear the glove.
As soon as one wears it, it starts tracking the person´s heart beat which is mirrored by brightness variations in the LED lights. This means the disco ball will pulse in sync with someone´s pulse. A second sensor located at the palm of the hand triggers changes in the RGB values. The idea is that if the controller claps, the lights change its color.
Made as part of the course Physical Computing at NYU's Interactive Telecommunication Program, Discontrol is a prototype. Its circuit includes an arduino, a motor shield, a stepper motor, and two LED strips. It was created as a device for house parties and amateur DJs.
