worlds largest social sketching tool
The ik-a-sketch is a variant on the well known etch-a-sketch toy. Two knobs are used for making a drawing consisting of a single line. In our version however, the knobs are too far apart for a single person to operate. The only way of making a sensible drawing is asking a friend to help you!
Made by Edwin Dertien & Neil Mendoza at the Mediamatic Social RFID Hackerscamp 2009. Location: PICNIC Club.
This and 10 other Social RFID projects are part of 'Play with your Tag' at PICNIC09.
This is what Neil and Edwin say about their project.
Two big white buttons will flash invitingly. Only when two people have tagged in, the drawing fun can start! The buttons will control the y- and x- coordinate of the line. When no drawing activity has been recorded for a while, the sketch will be saved to the anymeta-profile.
You will become online friends with your drawing partner and the drawing is saved to your profile.
