In the last weekend of November, we attended the STRP festival with the ShameStation. That was a lot of fun and we were pretty popular, with curious people coming to see what this ‘game’ was. During these four days of fun we were also spotted by Bright, who immediately wanted us on the BrightLive festival. It seems that the star of the ShameStation is on the rise 🙂
Here’s two videos showing the ShameStation in action on STRP festival:
Wednesday we came back from Salzburg, after having spent two days on the PerGames conference with our ShameStation project. It was a lot of fun, Salzburg is a nice town, great for spending a weekend in 🙂
The conference was a lot of fun as well. Many interesting projects, posters and talks and everyone liked our ShameStation. Even though we didn’t get too much sleep with all the driving to Austria and back and the getting up early, it was still a great little mini-vacation and a nice experience.
I’m very excited about going to Austria this weekend. Nicolette and I are going to PerGames, a conference on pervasive gaming, and the ShameStation project we created together with Jeroen (who sadly can’t join us) is going to be there as a live demo. Needless to say, we wanted to upgrade it a bit to look its best and I think it turned out great with our new helmet. It’s a fireman’s helmet with a wireless camera and wireless headphones integrated and it will give you optimal control over another person when you’re having him spray water onto innocent and unsuspecting bystanders (muhahaha)!
