Mood Table

The Mood Table

Mood Table reacts to it forces on its surface. As people press the surface of the table, it displays different light patterns and plays poetic sounds.


At its heart is three servo motors and an Interface Kit with 4 force sensors. The four force sensors read the forces on the top of the table. That information is then used to control the servo motors that are used to control dimmer switches which in turn control the light level of the various lights. The force sensor information is also used to control the sound.
