Disco Bar completed

David Worden let us know that he has completed work on his Disco Bar which we covered earlier. To save his bandwidth, I suggest you watch the video on YouTube.

  3. JErome says:

    I thought at first, that is was a entire floor and the bottle were people!

    ps- I am not drunk

  4. impeesa says:

    You’re thinking of the MIT disco dance floor:


  5. kitty says:

    can anyone say disco airhockey table… *drool*

  6. justdiy says:

    way cool, sweet work whomever built it!

  7. Dima Mischenko says:

    Whoa! that’s so cool! Probly took him ages to program the effects.

  8. Damn nice, but I would make one change I would add tetris, lol, I liked the pong!

  10. Joshua says:

    That is sweet. Out of nowhere pong comes up. I bet that took ages to program. The most ipmortaint thing i want to know is, can you put your drinks on it :)

  11. of course you can drink on it! The top is covered in epoxy, so its totally liquid proof.

    Thanks for the comments!

  13. I mean, yes, you can put your drinks on it :-)

    that would be annoying as hell to play beer pong on

  15. kevinin says:

    lol, i want to see somebody play pong on this board!

    well if you were to take this design and then figure out a way to make it hella bigger then replace the wood surfce of the airhockey table it would be ulmost done….that would be kick ass

    Most of those effects were from the MIT disco floor, they have them available for download on their website. I now want to build me a bar like this for my new apartment. And as for beer pong, you could make really cool scoreboard out of it :p

  18. wang chung says:

    OMFG AWESOME!!!!!!!!

  19. SilverPill says:

    I would do a coffe table

  20. Rectifier says:

    Congrats man, this is sweet. You know how you should spend a bunch more time now? Make it reactive.
    Some kind of capacitive sensors, or even something along the lines of reed switches in each cell, and magnets on the base of glasses/bottles comes to mind… that’s a lot of inputs, but I’m sure you could come up with some neat visuals to surround your drink and chase that fumbled shotglass around the table…

  21. dick says:

    just fyi- this is all done w/ the MIT DDF software and hardware… our bar-friend just assembled them. very cool, nonetheless- i’m jealous.

  22. Dont worry dick, I think its pretty obvious I’m using MIT’s controller boards. After all, I DO state that right on my blog. :-)

  23. Andrew says:

    My friend is doing the same thing– great idea, no?


    these projects are catching on

  24. Steve says:

    Andrew, doing the same thing? More like he’s copying his idea.


    Maybe he should think of something original.

  25. I just made a How-to if anyone is interested.


    Check it out!

  26. mike says:

    come on, this guy didn’t do much original other than turn the dancefloor into a bar… its certainly cool but its just MIT’s surface when it comes down to it. nothing original there.

  27. andrew says:

    its not lame haha in fact the commenter mike hit the nail on the head, all these projects stem from one (MITs) if something original is what your looking don’t look at the bar projects

  28. terry says:

    way too cool
    can’t wait to build one for my self

  29. trebuchet03 says:

    I like ‘em all… but what’s kinda confusing is when someone says original idea and disco dance floor in the same context…

    The floor is not a new idea… neither is digital control of it o.0 That’s not to take glory away from any such projects – but it made me laugh… As with most disco dance surfaces :P – the cool factor is just as high as the guy who did the animated christmas lights to music :P
