Sustainable Dance Floor????




The Sustainable Dance Floor™ is the first dance floor that captures the energy of dancing. The energy produced by movement is converted into electricity that is used to make the dance floor react to the dancer in an interactive way.
The floor provides a unique visual experience on every energy level, from 'loading' and 'average', to the maximum level of the evening: 'ultimate high'! All visuals are a continuous real-time interaction between the clubbers on the floor, allowing every individual's actions to contribute to the collective experience.
Sustainable Dance Floor
The Sustainable Dance Floor consists of separate tiles of 65 cm x 65 cm each. A mechanical system 'clicks' the tiles together, which makes it possible to set up the dance floor in every desirable size.
The floor can be set up at almost any location. The only limitation for outside use is that the dance floor needs to be covered by a tent. The different colours of the LED lights makes the generated energy levels visible on the Dance Floor.

Energy Meter
The Energy Meter encourages the dancer to attain the maximum possible energy level. This means that dancers are constantly reminded of the relationship between their movement and the result of their actions and that this is the sustainable experience. SDC offers two kinds of Meters: the 'Tower' model shows the amount of energy in percentages (25%, 50%, 75% and 100%) and controls the colours of the dance floor. The 'LED Battery' model shows the precise amount of Watts generated. The background of the screen shows the SDC movie of the dance floor and can be completely customised to meet the client's brand requirements.
Rental options
The Sustainable Dance Floor is available for rent, with options from 9 tiles as a showcase to a full dance floor of 70 tiles, and everything in between. The dance floor can be easily transported and set up, providing a fun and eye-catching way to showcase sustainability at events, exhibitions and festivals all over the world.
Purchase options
For permanent installations in your club, museum, company hall or for an exhibition or a public space, Sustainable Dance Floor tiles can be purchased. The minimum number of tiles is four, while no maximum applies. Purchased tiles come in a package with a ControlUnit (drive behind the technique) and Energy Meter.
Process & Development
The dance floor is a fusion of electronics, embedded software and smart durable materials. Every tile makes a vertical movement of up to 1 cm when danced on. These movements are transformed by an advanced electric motor into electric power. Every person is able to produce 2-20 Watt, depending on the dancers weight and activity on the dance floor. The generated energy is then used to power the interactive elements of the floor or can be used to power other systems. The technology of the dance floor is continuously being developed.
The technology of the floor can also be used for other applications such as gyms, railway stations and airports.
