Thought Bubbles

2015

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Thought Bubbles is an interactive installation that invites you to play with giant levitating spheres. Initially coming to life as a playful reinvention of the office whiteboard, the product has since taken on a surprising number of functions. Thought Bubbles can be used as ambient up-lighting, levitating signage or as part of an immersive stage performance.

HOW IT WORKS

Thought Bubbles is one in a series of installations developed by Harvey & John that exploit the Bernoulli Principle, which states that spheres will float on columns of high flow, low-pressure air. The movement of each bubble is controlled via an app designed by Harvey & John.

 

There are several functions available from static hovering, to choreographed sequences with multiple Thought Bubbles. The spherical base can even be tilted to a 45° angle whilst still levitating the bubble mid-air.
