Imagine spinning or throwing a tiny computer round your body to create your own visual projections, music or light show. Poi is a traditional Maori art form, the Poi dance was originally used by Maori women for keeping their hands flexible for weaving and by the men for strength and coordination required during battle. uPOI is a sensor packed upgrade of the original that can trigger visual and audio soundscapes in real time using the magic of wireless technology. Since uPoi is robust, audience members can pick up and perform with uPoi to create their own audio soundscapes and visual projections and to join in with other audience members. Exhibited and performed in Europe, Australia and North America.
