Building the BoomIlluminator

Inside redpepper's entry for this Red Bull Creation competition

Early this year, redpepper was one of 200 teams selected by Red Bull to take part in the energy drink giant’s third Red Bull Creation competition. The charge was to build an engaging contraption using a circuit board, some lights and other materials. Brainstorming yielded the BoomIlluminator, an interactive art installation featuring more than 100 empty Red Bulls that synchronizes smartphones with the lighting being produced by the wall-mounted installation. The BoomIlluminator wasn’t chosen as one of six finalists for the competition, but you can check out the team’s creation at this link.
