Lab RA Vlad Cazan and the Button MasherFebruary 2nd, 2012
EDGE Lab RA Vlad Cazan presented the Button Masher at the TIFF Nexus Locative Media Day on Oct, 28th, 2011. It is a single or two player interactive tactile experience consisting of two devices each with 30 LED-embedded buttons and multiple game modes. Games range from Snake-like game play, reaction based two player games and a strategy game similar to Othello. The size and nature of the device create an experience you cannot find with traditional controllers. Devices like the iPad are too small and the Kinect lacks the tactile response.
