Zygote, The Glowing Amusment Ball

Zygote, The Glowing Amusment Ball

By Ryan Nill

Zygote is the name of a giant rubber ball filled with helium and some sort of vague LED contraption. Hit it and it shifts through various color spectrums. Add drugs and party-people and you have yourself a heavily sedated crowd, all intently staring at a glowing beachball. Only hilarity can ensue. Created by Alex Beim (and numerous other people) of the Interactive Collective Tangible, the Zygote is being touted as a way to “transform the divorcement into a multi-sensorial, interactive playground, actively engaging the crowd.” Right. The touch sensitive LEDs on the inside of the helium-filled beachball can also be programed to synchronize with music, set to flicker through colors or a variety of other complex interactions.

The creator is looking for publicity and intends to join forces with musicians to bring these fabulous glowing beachballs to a concert near you.
