A workshop about interaction.
After last year’s One Button Workshop (with mouse-hacking) we tried a new approach with very constrained interaction: “design a game with zero buttons”. Good projects emerged featuring audio input, accelerometer (both: from iPhone or the computer itself), mouse and multiple-mice, analog-sticks, trackpads, cameras, etc.
Focus was on interaction so the first two days were used to experiment with different input devices and on how to smooth noisy signals (for example data coming from accelerometer inputs).
Very handy came AccSim for iPhone-computer communication.
