For those who have always dreamed of conducting their own symphony, the Floating Orchestra makes this fantasy a reality. It is essentially a mini, technological orchestra that is controlled by the iPhone.

Created by London's Poietic Studio, the Floating Orchestra is comprised of 19 ping pong-like spheres, each of which represent a different orchestral instrument. Every time a sphere rises, the volume of that particular instrument increases. Users can now feel like a talented musician with this creative and intelligent device. Ever engaging, the Floating Orchestra shows how fun and useful the interaction between the digital technology with the physical world can be.

Poietic Studio hopes to have the Floating Orchestra controlled by movement soon rather than the iPhone.
