Virtual Beach Balls: Interactive games for theatre audiences.


Archway 2 - 1:00 pm, Friday 3 March


How do you design an interactive game for more than 100 people sitting in a theatre? We created this project for a bit of fun at the GRAPHITE 2005 Electronic Theatre. Since then, we have run our games at a Music Camp in Oamaru, at Hands on Science and in Summer School.

We will demonstrate a game or two and discuss some of the technical and social problems that must be solved to create a worthwhile experience working with crowds that include school pupils as well as PhDs.

The early bird gets the beach ball...
