    It looks like it is supplemented by electronic sounds. I think it would great to make twin-leaf looking solar array to make it run completely on alternative energy sources. Of course it would need to withstand being outside but anyway that is really cool.

    The Boing is stupid. Is it real? If it is real it is stupid. If it is fake it is stupid.

    i should hope at least ONE person would think it’s stupid.

    Yes, the Boing sounds and lights are computer controlled using MaxMSP. I’m sorry there isn’t more footage of the controls and sensors, there was just too much bounce to be had!
