Vertigo Dance Floor lights up Museum

Tonight we brought the dance floor to the Saint Louis Contemporary Art Museum for their "select night" series sponsored by Anheuser-Busch. We packed the house -- they had to turn people away to stay within their occupancy limit of 750 people! The DJ spun a unique mix of progressive electronica while 20 / 30-somethings talked and danced and checked out the avant garde displays. Several people approached us with offers to rent out the floor for their parties or other functions, which was flattering. Overall it was a successful night and gave us some opportunities to see exactly what aspects need to be improved in our next design!

We've checked them out, and got a quote on price for an equivalent size. Their product, which is undoubtedly much more "professional" and fully featured, costs at almost 20 times as much as this did to make.

Still a good product, though, and theres plenty we can learn from them

Read about you in the Institute Online. Neat project. Would you know if any other IEEE student groups might be doing something similar in the Princeton, Philadelphia, Bethlehem area? This would fit well into a First Night project I'm working on.

Dance Dance Revolution was all the rage a few years ago, and you hardly see anyone busting out these dance mats during a party anymore, not since the Nintendo Wii and its bunch of quirky games were released anyway. The Metal Pad DDR Platinum Pro targets the hardcore dancers, as this special mat features nine stainless steel pads, a thick metal frame and hand rail for greater support, and a surface that offers three times the firmness of a standard filmsy dance mat. It weighs a whooping 35kg, so you can guess just what kind of stuff they put inside. Remember the Ultimate Dance Deck 2.0 that we covered yesterday? I can't quite but help myself to wonder whether this design was inspired by that or not. Still, it is nice to know that there are still people around who appreciate the joys of sweating it out on a DDR dance mat.

More high end ones:

Having recently transformed my house, I had some troubles I would like to pass onto others so they can dodge the issues I had. First of all don’t trust anyone else’s opinion on furniture except yours and people living in the house. Don’t ask why I’ve put this just listen to it. Also if you are going to attempt to have contemporary lamps make sure you buy them from somewhere reputable so you know they are contemporary and they will last. Also make sure your dining tables big enough for all the family/friends when they come round to dinner to judge all your hard work. Nothing worse then having a few people on patio chairs eating off the corner of the table.

The first thing you need to decide when choosing a floor lamp is what its main purpose is. Are you getting a lamp to add extra lighting to the whole room, or are you buying a lamp to provide lighting for reading or other activities? Torchiere floor lamps, which have an inverted shade that points toward the ceiling, have light that is directed at the ceiling. These lights are a nice choice if you are looking for a lamp to add warm, inviting light to a dark corner of your room. In a small room a torchiere light can often times be the only lighting source in the room since they give off a good amount of light.If, on the other hand, you are looking to add light for reading or any other task, you may want to consider a floor lamp with directional heads. These lamps have lights that point downward instead of toward the ceiling, and usually the lights can be moved up or down or turned to the side to direct the light where you need it. Floor lamps with directional lighting come both with a single bulb and with multiple bulbs, so be sure to choose a lamp that provides enough light for your needs. If you place a floor lamp like this next to a chair or sofa in your livingroom you can pivot the light to the right position for reading or task lighting.
