This conceptual project is meant to encourage consumers to a more conscious
approach to electricity as a resource. The used electricity becomes visible in a playful, interactive way.
Special laser projectors generate a hologram light ball that seems to hover in the air. PrimeSence-Depth-Sensors track the hands of users. If one reaches for the sphere the system automatically projects a small light sphere into ones hand. Carried to an electric device such as a laptop or a lamp, it turns it on. The projected light sphere visualizes this power-up while actually the tracking-software turns the light on. After a short time the devices switch off
again, depending on their actual energy expenditure. The user has to “carry”
energy again. In this process the source sphere is getting smaller and smaller.
