What Is Kinetic:
Kinetic is a small device which mixes technology, art, lights and dance to provide amazing results. It is basically a micro light i.e. a device with LED micro lights which respond to the movement of the dancer. These movements can be of a finger, hand, or any other body part. With the help of an accelerometer, which is built – in, it measures the motion and position of the dancer and accordingly changes the speed of lights and frequency of changing colors.
Colors And Their Work:
Kinetics has been equipped with nineteen different colors along with a blank. These colors keep changing as the accelerometer measures the change in the postures and speed of dancerâ€™s maneuvers. In addition to these colors, the device is enriched with true brightness feature which can be set to high, medium or low. What this does is that it makes the intensity of colors adjustable and provides more options to the dancer to play with colors. Further, the color change and timings of change can also be configured as per choice.
A True Magic:
A combination of technology with art of dancing is something which gives a magnificent view for the spectators. Kinetic gives that magnificence to the performance as it only needs the dance movements from the performer and the dancer can use his skills to produce an extraordinary effect with the changing lights.
