things, tinkering and thougths by eric
Campus party is the biggest technology event in the world, it is sort of an oversized LAN-party with more than 6000 geeks. Besides sitting in front of your computer and playing games you can also attend some workshops and listen to various speakers. The Campus Party was held in one of the beautiful buildings from ‘Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias ‘ (city of arts and sciences).
The part of Campus Party where the interactive installations were shown was the ‘Campus Futuro‘ section, there were some other cool interactive projects like the Wiispray, Move and some robots. The entry was free to this section so a lot of people entered.
The building was open from 10:00 till 21:00 seven days a week. It was a good test case to see how Gyro worked under these ‘extreme’ conditions. Although it still is a prototype, it worked quite well and was easy to fix the problems which occurred.
It was a great week and I’am full of ideas and improvements for the next version of Gyro.
