Games are the new cinema, they are breaking free from the console and hitting the streets. These games are a new way of exploring ideas, meeting people and having fun. Hugely social, they are a new entertainment form.

Exploring the boundaries between social media and physical interaction, Tweeture embodies digital communication in a robotic toy capable of tweeting its own social narrative. Through an exchange of tweets with the creature, the public enter a childlike play: social barriers dissolve and people connect in tangible, real-life ways.
