Based on this prototype we got a chance to test the interaction, which led us to remove some difficulties from the equation. Now, instead of using felt pompoms as our pressure sensors, we will build a padded semi-sphere which will enclose several pressure sensors, and depending on how and where you touch it, it will trigger sets of lights and sounds in the installation. This will also give us more alternatives to hide the circuitry, for a better look+feel.

Here’s a small video of our working prototype.
