For those of you who work more on the hardware/electronics side of things, Kokoromi and Create Digital Media are very happy to announce:
CALL FOR WORKS – KOKOROMI’S ONE-BUTTON GAME OBJECTS
What can you do with one button? In an age of ever-more-complex touch interfaces, we’d like to imagine what a single, tangible, hardware button can mean for a design.
To celebrate the arrival of their Gamma game event in San Francisco, game collective Kokoromi is teaming up with Create Digital Music and Create Digital Motion to launch a call for ONE-BUTTON OBJECTS. This call seeks to inspire unique hardware/software hacks that integrate playful, one-button interaction within a standalone machine or device. The curators are seeking circuit-bent gadgets, retro-fitted consoles, mechanical constructions, custom electronics, and other one-off creations. During the week of the Game Developers Conference, the Game Objects will be featured in an exhibit at the Gray Area Foundation, a new collaboration and exhibition venue revitalizing the Tenderloin, near the Moscone Center. A selection of these Objects will be shown at the opening night Gamma party, alongside the software-based Gamma4 one-button games, on March 10th at the Mezzanine in SoMa.
CDM will be organizing some hackdays around the world to get people started on their One Button creations, so stay tuned!
