Intel CES – 2018 Keynote Pre-show

Intel brought in [namethemachine] to design and program the interactive data visuals for their CES 2018 Intel Keynote pre-show performance. The dance spectacle featured state-of-the-art technologies such as motion tracking, drones, real-time animation, and floating LEDs. Imaginex developed a custom solution for the flying LED tubes to move and change colors based on dancer Sophie Santella’s choreography.
