Cloud is a music-activated visualisation system that conducts thunder and lightning performances.

Using an Arduino controller and embedded motion sensors, Cloud’s interactive lamp and speaker system flashes light and explodes sound to simulate the immersive experience of thunder and lightning indoors. Users can adjust the cloud’s light level and color while streaming music via Bluetooth-compatible devices. A ‘cloud’ comprised of sensors and code, this project converts a question of nature into one of technology.
