Burn The Keyboard
Come build new interactions and control schemes for games. Open to public and all skill levels welcome. Feel free to bring your own materials/craft supplies/tools. We'll provide the MaKey MaKey's and other components. You can make your own games or bring your favorites (you can map the inputs to work with almost any game). Come by yourself and join a team or bring your own team.
Joon put it best:
"Most digital experiences are confined to keyboard, mouse and gamepad, or with complicated and expensive electronics. In this workshop, you will find out how remarkably easy it is to build something physical, that can interact with games and all other interactive jazz. With inexpensive raw materials like arcade buttons, joysticks, duct tape and cardboard, together we will create three custom controller installations that will be exhibited for the rest of the festival. After an introduction and a short talk about existing projects, you’ll get to designing and building something unique, and the workshop hosts will be there to help you out when things get too technical. Let’s build a racecar, a joystick-cowboy-hat, maybe just the world’s largest joystick,… or whatever we come up with."
