Our project is meant to be used by one person at a time, but experienced and appreciated by many others simultaneously.
Who doesn't love dancing like a fool? Unfortunately, such joy is not often experienced during daylight, while sober, and in the judging eyes of your close friends. Our project is meant to embrace the silliness of late-night raves and put it on the pedestal. While wearing our box-helmet apparatus, the user will experience an overwhelming light show that syncs with a mesmerizing dance beat. The experience will draw a fine line between mesmerizing and obnoxious, and if the user does not suffer an epileptic shock, they will likely be drawn into the fantastic light show and explore the interactive features of the helmet while stumbling across the designated dance rug. Tilting the helmet (side to side, front to back) will alter the light effects and adjust filters on the music. So the more you bob your head, the more you get out of the party. The user will be encouraged to move around with the helmet, sing along, dance, head bang, etc., while the rest of the class looks on, laughing, pretending they don't deeply desire to wear the party helmet.
