The next prototype raises the backpack experience to a communal level. Five sound showers where used that played specific tones and fragments of discussions, in front if corresponding prints of Kodály hand signs for solmization.

The tones you could hear when you observed someone walking by the prints, but the discussion you could only hear when you have walked yourself. This was achieved through hidden sensors in the floor that you stepped on.

The communal experience became interesting, some if the visitors where starting to collaborate, and step in and out together to understand the installation. A social space was created.
