The Predator by Mau Morgó


Acer presented their new gaming computer: the Predator; during the Next@Acer event at the World Trade Center in NYC. We displayed the Predator above a pool of ferrofluid, a liquid that metamorphoses when affected by a magnet, and under the pool you found 43 powerful rare earth magnets attached to servomotors that moved vertically, creating different patterns on the ferrofluid surface.

A sign reading “Ask and the Predator will answer” invited guests to speak into a microphone in front of the Predator display, turning the vocalizations into magnetic charges which brought the ferrofluid to life beneath the display.
