Science Symphony

Always keen to impress, Pufferfish brought ‘the noise’ to the recent Edinburgh International Science festival…

If you attended the renowned Edinburgh International Science Festival this year, you may have spotted not one, but two PufferSpheres in action. We took along both a standard PufferSphere M unit and our new interactive model to the Children’s Science Festival venue to let the budding scientists get to grips with the wonders of spherical projection.

Making its Edinburgh debut and running our music box application, the interactive PufferSphere M with integrated audio presented a spherical step-sequencer, or tenori, inviting everyone from visiting children to grown adults to unleash their inner musician and create a symphony on the sphere.  Those with an ear for a tune or the feet for a rhythm could build up a sequence of chord and percussion elements, kept in time by the spinning of the sphere.

With such a highly regarded and engaging event being on our doorsteps, Pufferfish were thrilled to be able to showcase our technology alongside the many innovators of the Edinburgh and Scottish science sectors. A special thanks to all the “musicians” that had a go on the PufferSphere, and top points for patience to the Science Festival staff who had to listen to the tuneful, and sometimes tuneless, results over the duration!
