KeJiPosted: 21 June 2012
I was part of the i-DAT team who developed KeJi for the Cheltenham Science Festival. KeJi means science and technology in Mandarin and is a playful artificial intelligent creature that visitors to the Cheltenham Science Festival can ‘chat’ to via Twitter or sms txts. Visitors can also play the game, ‘KeJi Bounce’. The game gives birth to a unique KeJi spawn character whose behavior is linked to the ECG of the players heart rate and biological data. Players have to bounce on a trampoline to keep their creature afloat and win the game.
The installation went down really well with over 300 people playing the game, including Vince Cable. Check out the KeJi website for more info.
