Festival for Playful Public Spaces


Hand Slapping, Digitized, Workshop

In this workshop we will build custom interfaces for physical games that involve hand slapping. We will create special gloves with conductive surfaces that connect to Arduino with code. After trying out different ways of using the gloves we will brainstorm together other ways the glove interface can be used.

Please register at connect@invisibleplayground.com and tell us if you can bring your own Arduino Board. Please also bring your own Laptop to this workshop!
