The Game Innovation Lab presents: ALT CTRL – A game jam for embodied, mobile and social games
Stop in Sunday at 6pm for the Closing Party, open to the public!
Ever wanted to make a game with a Kinect, Wii, Playstation Move, mobile, Arduino or teddy bear for the controller? Games can be more than console experiences: Come and make a game that explores different and fun ways to play. Ideas using everything from Kinects to robots are encouraged. The more inventive and crazy the game concept, the better! Participants are competing in an manic 48 hour race against the clock to create an experience exploring alternative game controllers.
Groups are judged based on how creative, usable and down right awesome their games are. Top secret prizes will be awarded. Prizes donated by Make Magazine and Adafruit.
Closing event is open to the public on Sunday at 6pm. All events are at the Game Innovation Lab. 5 Metrotech Place. Dibner Building, Room 102. Brooklyn, NY 11201.
What is NYU Poly’s Game Innovation Lab?
The Lab’s emphasis is on the technical/engineering/science side of games and simulations. Sample projects include user interface innovation (sensor-based tracking, multi-touch), network and video quality research, and research on games for learning.”
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
