Open B( )ll is an ongoing project based on the idea of combining easy to find, industrially produced objects with the sensing abilities of a smartphone in order to develop DIY game controllers. The first controller which is in the form of a wooden ball consists of two ikea bowls combined with three ikea cork trivets and a rubber-band to hold a smartphone.
