Lighten up in the Seaport

Seaport Boston by WS Development

Is the dreary weather getting you down? Brighten your mood by heading to the Seaport for a bounce on an illuminated, musical seesaw.

The neighborhood now hosts light-and-art installation Seaport x Impulse, a collection of 12 seesaws connected to LED lights and a speaker. When they’re moved, they emit light and sound; when nobody’s using them, they simply glow. The faster you ride, the brighter and noisier they become. Who needs Keytar Bear when you can create your very own urban symphony?

The interactive display is on view until April 16. Find the seesaws on Seaport Common (85 Northern Ave.).
