Disco on a Train

Dance lab project
  [vote for,

Disco on a Train is a DARPA FUNDED project to produce a dance notation.

It consists of a disco on a train that goes around a precisely controlled circular track that can be angled, curved and turned facing in or out according to lots of cool computer controlled algorithms that the recording system on the train is then hooked to, and the people inside the train dance while the physics in the train changes according to the track and speed, which e recording g system is hooked up to, so then the data is all mushed together and the know differences of the physics is subtracted from the predicted movements of the bodies and a dance notation is worked out so that you can feel someone else making decisions about dancing in real time. The notation could be conveyed to the reader in a combination of audio, video, or just running the train backwards.

       /what's a trian?/   

       Used in a sentence: "Is that a conniption fit or are you trian disco?"

       really though I think the Trian is an organized crime group. Something about ninjas, too. Maybe Yakuza? Opium? All that.
