Experience the transformation of Kennedy Library’s grand staircase into a live game board using wire, cans and balloons. As seen on Boing Boing! boingboing.net/2012/03/14/library-staircase-delightfully.html

As part of a recent Cal Poly Science Café, we aimed and threw tennis balls at the cans, which acted as live switches. A digital scoreboard tracked the team’s cans as they were knocked over; it was shared on displays throughout the library and on participants’ mobile devices.

This event featured web developers/designers Michael J. Newman and Scott Hutchinson.

Join Kennedy Library on Facebook to hear about future events, which are open to everyone.
