What if.. your conference badge was a game controller?
Part of the Learning2 Europe badge hack series of provocations.
What you need:
Conference badge (I used Learning2 Europe 2016 Milan edition)
We took a traditional game controller design with the Earth from Makey Makey being the heart. After some user testing for our version of Super Mario Land, modifications were made to enable right/jump simultaneously. This is an easy fix by reassigning croc clips to create the control you need.
Version 2.0 featured a copper wire ring connected to the earth heart and reassigned jump key to thumb to enable more Mario control.
The Makey Makey badge hack opens up endless opportunities for imagining a new type of game controller.
What if you controller was tube shaped?
What if you connected humans to each control for interactive conference gaming?
