Jelly Swarm

Jelly Swarm by Tangible Interaction
There is a really cool display up at the Vancouver Aquarium right now, designed by Tangible Interaction and origami artist Joseph Wu.

Inspired by the jellies found off the British Columbia coast, “Jelly Swarm” features 94 origami works each filled with an LED.  Visitors can excite the origami jellies into creating beautiful colour and light patterns from a touch screen controller. When left alone, the jellies interact with their closest neighbours, triggering random, generative displays of coloured light.
