With Protopixel HARDcade, visitors can perform live visuals with a vintage coin-op Arcade machine.
The visuals are generated by the software and displayed through the monitor of the cabinet and two video projectors.
The moving images are characterized by low resolution, aliased images, a limited frame rate and a limited set of colors, as well as some loops and “old school” effects. Some graphic elements are abstract geometries and repeated patterns. The software also includes electronic 8-bit sounds related to the images displayed on the screens.
