Wobble Garden

Robin Baumgarten – 2017

Wobble Garden

Developer and artist Robin Baumgarten experiments with unusual interfaces in his works.

The »Wobble Garden« playing field consists of 36 springs with plastic heads equipped with LEDs in the ZKM version. By touching or wobbling the springs, the LEDs light up. Small Arduino boards record the players' inputs and forward them to a computer. The game can be played alone or in groups.

»Wobble Garden« won the Audience Award of the »A MAZE« Festival Berlin 2018.
