Future Factory

an interactive museum installation for children

Future Factory was realized for Deutsches Museum Bonn as part of their new family area, which guides children through the technological development from 1950 until today and beyond. The installation consists of two stations. In the first game, children build their own robot through interaction with a jumping point on the ground. In the second one, they control their finished robot with a kinect camera and enjoy a flight through the factory. The installation gives children an easy and fun introduction to the topic of robotics. Besides concepting and prototyping for the kinect-game, it was my part to program the first game (robot building by jumping), with processing and arduino. In the prototyping phase, the project also involved a fun and insightful test at a local kindergarten.
