Experimental Videogame Consoles That Let You Make One Move a Day #ArtTuesday

Experimental Videogame Consoles That Let You Make One Move a Day, from WIRED:

…This abstract cube is the work of Ishac Bertran, a designer living in New York City. And he’s made more than one. Bertran turned Mario, Tetris and Pong into minimalist game cubes, all of which come with a major disclaimer: Players can only make one move a day.

Appropriately, they’re called Slow Games, and the idea is to transform what is traditionally a fast-moving activity into a contemplative experience. Plenty of videogames are designed to tickle our instant gratification scratch. “This is what allows a game to be really engaging, really immersive,” says Bertran. “When you play a videogame, everything in the room disappears.” Slow Games takes the opposite approach.

…You could draw comparisons to technology in a more general sense. More often than not, its purpose is to decrease the friction in our lives. The easier, the faster, the more immediate, the better, right? Not so fast, says Bertran. “We’ve developed this super fast, automated way of interacting with things,” he says. “Technology is almost anticipating what you will do.” This form of interaction is neither a good or bad thing, he adds, but it’s at least something that deserves some reflection. “For me this [Slow Games] is a way to test how we interact with technology that bends the rules a little bit,” he says.

Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
