The “International Dance Party” looks like a regular flight case – but in reality, it is a complete interactive party-in-a-box.
The machine has a built in radar: When it detects movements in the space where it is stored, it opens up its speaker front and plays a few inviting beats. If people then start to dance, it opens up more and more, reveals its light and laser effects and starts its internal smoke machine, while the music also becomes more phatt.
While art lovers see a comment on effort and reward in this installation – I just think it is a really fun machine. And it is for sure tremendously good at starting ad-hoc parties!
