Time Toys at K3

dcuartiellesFebruary 13th, 2009

This week we had mid-course presentations at K3’s first year class in Physical Prototyping. The brief was to create toys or digitaly agmented board games playing with the issue of time. We have been running this course about four times in the last 6 months and the results are just getting better.

As usual, the brief is open and students are free to re-interpret it and make anything they like out of it. Music Time! is one of those projects that breaks with the pre-established brief and ends up being really good. Playing with time at a micro level and with how analog recording platforms (cassette tapes) store and reproduce sound can become an interesting game.

If you are interested in K3’s open lecture system, you are more than welcome to follow up the courses Physical Prototyping I and Physical Prototyping II. David Sjunnesson from 1scale1 is kindly posting all the pictures of this year’s projects on his flickr page and you can find most of the works on youtube by just looking for the tags “k3” and “PP1” or “PP2”
