  • Serious Gaming: Energy needs in a city

    These boxes were designed and built for Frisse Blikken, who had designed a serious game for Alliander where employees had to experience the coming changes energy demands, and learn how to adapt the network to it. protoproto was hired to design a way for the game to be physically digital, allowing instant feedback for the players. The system consists of 26 WiFi equipped boxes that communicate with a central server. The boxes' behaviour is entirely defined in the server, allowing the game logic to be easily updated.
