Momentum: A Microsoft Powered Kinetic Sculpture

Made of locally sourced ash wood. Inspired by the Microsoft logo, the sculpture is also made up of 80 Ultra motion linear actuators, 160 custom milled wooden tiles and 10 micro-controllers. As if it was alive and breathing, Momentum moves when it senses human motion. Custom LEDs light up, illuminating with the wave-like movement. When users interact with the sculpture, it feels as though Momentum is gracefully following your every move.
