Hi! My name is Miral Kobt.
• 0:09 - 0:13
I'm the creator of iLuminate.
• 0:13 - 0:16
In my work there is something I use in both dances
• 0:16 - 0:20
and in programming light suits. And that is... loops!
• 0:20 - 0:23
Loops are repeating an action over and over.
• 0:23 - 0:28
When you repeat something multiple times, like my actions to keep the hula hoop spinning,
• 0:28 - 0:31
I'm performing a loop of that action
• 0:31 - 0:39
This is a loop
• 0:41 - 0:48
Today we're going to have a dance party. We'll act out loops with a new dance: The Iteration.
• 0:48 - 0:51
We're going to learn about loops using a dance.
• 0:51 - 0:57
You'll learn a couple of easy steps and then repeat them over and over to complete the dance.
• 0:57 - 0:59
Here are the steps you'll need to learn:
• 0:59 - 1:04
• 1:04 - 1:08
put your hands on your waist, lift your left hand up
• 1:08 - 1:11
lift your right hand up
• 1:11 - 1:13
Pretty simple, right?
• 1:13 - 1:17
Head, waist. Head, waist. Clap clap clap.
• 1:17 - 1:22
Do you see how some steps are repeated? Such as clap? That's a loop!
• 1:22 - 1:24
We need to do it two more, ready?
• 1:26 - 1:30
You will discover that you can shorten the directions by putting some dance steps in loops.
• 1:30 - 1:32
• 1:32 - 1:36
Now we're gonna do a belly laugh, ready?
• 1:39 - 1:41
We actually do use loops in our dancing
• 1:41 - 1:45
The dancers are wearing computers and they're all in the same network
• 1:45 - 1:48
So I might loop the lights through the same dancers over and over again
• 1:48 - 1:51
So in the loop I might have an iteration, I'll say you wanna go
• 1:51 - 1:55
loop through these 6 dancers over and over again and then within the loop
• 1:55 - 1:57
you'll want to increase the speed so that
• 1:57 - 2:00
you're both looping through the same dancers but you're also increasing
• 2:00 - 2:04
the speed of the lights so that it kind of plays a visual trick on the audience.
• 2:04 - 2:06
And that's all created through loops.
• 2:07 - 2:11
Loops are important in computer science because they make our work shorter and easier.
