Huge thanks to the Autodesk intern and also Autodesk Social Media maestro Dan Zucker for showing me the cube when they placed it in the Autodesk Gallery on October 16, 2014.
Description of the Project Social Lights Cube:
This cube of 500 pulsating LED lights depicts live-streaming online interactions:
social media mentions of Autodesk generate visual sparks. The resulting data- driven rhythms exemplify the Internet of Things - Information sent through the Internet, on billions of devices, triggering physical actions. Each mention of Autodesk and our products stimulates a pulsing blink of the cube's lights in various colors. Through hashtag commands, you can choreograph unique patterns.
The description reminds me of my mind blowing powerhouse colleague Mickey McManus who is currently a Visiting Fellow in the Autodesk Office of the CTO. Yes, we are lucky to have him for some time.
