LED Waterfall

LED Waterfall is an exploration of the intersection between real and virtual worlds. It was an experiment to find what it is exactly that makes the mixed reality experience feel “magical”.

The LED matrix empties out when you tilt it, with a little bit of code. These crystals then fall into a physical cup and are collected there to form larger crystals.

The project was made using Unity3D and a SenseHat with Raspberry Pi.

We found that the feedback loop from virtual to physical, and then back to virtual was creating a believable and magical scenario.
