Plasma Wall

Cubers, it's time to let your body talk!

Get up-close and personal with Plasma Wall, a fun and colourful interactive for all to enjoy. Plasma Wall is a collection of abstract light and movement games for families and students to discover through the movement of their own body.

You control The Cube! Using motion capture technology, coupled with four state-of-the-art projectors, the Cube Studio team have created a new experience that encourages free play and interaction. The wall intelligently tracks your movement and then mimics it in the 4 different mini-games. The projectors are designed to work together to create an entire wall of interactive games, from the trippy 'Lava Lamp' to the rather alarming 'You're on Fire'. The installation is intended to catch the eye of anyone passing and engage them in an interactive game of copycat, or digital follow the leader.

Four different mini-games are currently available:
Lava Lamp – A rainbow of flowing colours that you manipulate with your movement.
You're on Fire – Your whole body is ablaze with cartoon flames dancing around your silhouette.
80s Disco – You become the party, as multiple copies of your silhouette repeat your actions in a cycle of colours.
Smash the Image – You blow the static image apart with your own body movements.

Plasma Wall is ready to be experienced now on level 5 at the Cube.
