Not Your Average Pool Party: Ping Pong Ball Projecting

RedPaperHeart Pool Party 10

Water isn’t known for being the most “projection friendly” surface. I mean, you shine a light on it and the beam either goes right through, or refracts and distorts badly. So when art studio Red Paper Heart was challenged by UrbanDaddy to come up with a way to create a memorable interactive experience in water, their expertly produced projections were going to need a different surface. What did they do?

A Revolutionary New Pool for NYC?

The unique idea of 3 overheated New Yorkers, this concept for a new floating public pool in the waters around Manhattan could be a welcome relief from the sweltering city heat. Their project, the +Pool, is currently raising support through a Kickstarter campaign and matches the iconic ‘+’ shape of the cities intersections. What makes the design really different? In order to give swimmers a direct connection to the river, the pool will utilize a unique green tech filtration system within it’s walls to fill itself directly from the surrounding river… and because of it’s shape, it will be able to be sectioned off for multiple uses, from free swim to swim meets.
