Sorry, this event is now completely FULL (but places are available for
other Fringe events) - please DO NOT attend unless you've had a confirmation email from the venue
Games machines - and other gadgets - are often capable of doing much
more than they were originally designed for, plus nowadays they're
also a) cheap, and b) everywhere. Inspired by the international
Dorkbot meetings of "people doing strange things with electricity",
this London Games Fringe event explores some of their unexpected
entertainment potential - if you've got a (portable) console that
you're doing something different with, by all means bring it along!
Tim Hunkin, engineer, cartoonist and maker of TV's "The Secret Life of
Machines", discusses his seaside showcase of modified simulators and
arcade games. http://www.timhunkin.com
Matthew Garrett, developer for the One Laptop Per Child project,
demonstrates the platform's gaming possibilities.
...and hardware hacker James Larsson celebrates more than 30 years of
Pong TV tennis with its first "adult-oriented" controllers, among
other "don't try this at home" inventions.
