Trapped in awe by the Life Size Mousetrap

The Life Size Mousetrap is a fantastically hand crafted, 16 piece, 50,000-lb. interactive kinetic sculpture set atop a 6,500-square-foot game board. This giant Rube Goldberg style contraption comes complete with a Vaudevillian style show, original Musical score by the one woman band Esmerelda Strange, Sexy Mice can-can dancers, clown workers, acrobatic hi jinks, and other spectacular scenes dedicated to the pursuit of spectacle-laden fun!

Find a friend, or an enemy, and play Hit Me!

Hit Me! is a two player hyper-interactive, physical game that tests speed, agility and the ability to take good snapshots. Hit Me! utilizes technology to encourage face-to-face real-world interaction between players and also spectators.

Look for it this weekend at World Maker Faire, NYC.

Mix it up with the Wheelchair DJ

RAMPS is a wheelchair DJ interface - the left wheel fades between tracks while the right wheel scratches the music. Users bring their existing wheelchair skills to the show, RAMPS detects the speed and direction of each wheel. The wheelchair becomes an interface to music, games and new computer interactions.

The maker, John Schimmel, is also heavily involved with NYSCI’s upcoming Human+ exhibition, and is developing an app with crowd-sourced data about in-depth accessibility features of places in our neighborhoods.
