Table Tennis, Trampoline, and the Ultramouse

A weekend full of ideas, thinking, and listening to people talk about interesting things.

Friday's Interaction Design Group seminar at the University of Melbourne was by Florian 'Floyd' Mueller on Design Influence on Social Play in Distributed Exertion Games. It was interesting to see a video of Table Tennis for Three, a game that uses video conferencing to allow you to play against people in other locations, using a real bat and ball.

Saturday was Trampoline, another unconference, this time at Donkey Wheel. The sessions seemed a lot less techy than StixCamp, but they were still interesting.

Sunday was Dorkbot Melbourne 27, with talks on Organic Form Synthesis through Morphogenetic Simulation by Benjamin Porter, and Overthinking the Ultramouse by Javier Candeira.

The weekend before, I attempted StixBlitz - redesigning the Welshmans Reef Vineyard website. This was my attempt: Welshmans Reef Vineyard.
