    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.


    While other space collective members have called for interactive performances, as of yet nothing yet has materialized. I'm writing this post because I have a tested plan that will do just that.

    Check it out: http://www.media.mit.edu/resenv/GiveawaySensors/index.html

    In case the hand-drawn block diagram and circuit schematics didn't make it clear to you, this is how it works:

    1. Before a show, a group of dashing individuals makes a couple thousand electronic instruments. Each one costs about a dollar, and is capable of picking up changes in acceleration (swinging it, hitting it, etc. ), and can broadcast this information wirelessly to a central computer. (Glow stick not required )

    2. Hand out a sensor device to everyone who attends the event.

    3. As people swing, hit, and play with their instruments, the information is transmitted to a DJ, who can turn this information into sounds. The system distinguishes where the signals are coming from, so different groups of dancers will make different sounds.

    Cost: $1 per person attending (cheap) !

    So, does anyone have a couple thousand dollars and a warehouse they can spare?
