The following applications were short-listed for the 2013 Playable City Award.
The Arc Project
A series of 3D scanning booths scattered throughout the city. Scan your body and see it play in the city’s augmented reality museum of life.
Inviting the residents of Bristol to rediscover their spirit of playfulness. By bursting some balloons.
An interactive pavilion, constructed using 3D scans of personal objects provided by the public, representing the different relationships people have with the city.
The City you Dreamed of
Tumbling out of a tip-up truck comes huge building blocks, all colours and shapes. Build your dream city, knock it down, and then build it again.
Hello Lamp Post!
The city is waking up. Lamp posts, bus stops, post boxes and more: all are rising from their slumber. They have questions, and they need answers.
An 'album' installed in a series of spaces throughout the city. Part light installation, part musical performance and part generative interface.
Jolly Brolly Mystery
Explore Bristol while solving a murder mystery - even on rainy days. All you need is a Jolly Brolly, a clever umbrella that serves as your game assistant and guide.
A network of lightweight, robust digital screens situated around Bristol inviting passers-by to get involved and play.
A street game that blends public space, collaboration and a swarm of little wheeled robots.
Sing a little Song
Digital songbirds are placed in trees, rooftops, alleys. Tweet them and hear your messages as beautiful bird song.
