I’m always excited to see new integrations of technology and play….these are the playscapes of the future, and even while we honor ‘traditional’ playgrounds we need to keep pushing forward with new forms and expressions that will continue to engage all ages in spaces for play.
“Camparc is a panoramic camera ball playground. It consists of a number of man-size balls which transmit live 360-degrees video to a large urban screen. Camparc invites people to explore their surroundings using these unique camera toys through free play. Anamorphic puzzles are drawn on streets and walls in the surrounding area to provide players with additional challenges. These drawings tie together the screen, balls and space in one delightful experience.”
Camparc is by hubbub, a Netherlands practice which describes itself as “..a geographically distributed team of people with backgrounds in design, technology and games….we make things with which people can have fun, express themselves and gain a better understanding of the world.”
