“Remote” Textile Game Controllers Jam

We are bringing the Game Jam to you!
We want to keep our workshops safe for the health and well being of you and our communities. Due to COVID-19, our Textile Game Controller Jam is going remote.

VISIT THE DMG WEBSITE to REGISTER FOR THE GAME JAM! You can also find the workshop details there.

How can electronic textile techniques be used to create bespoke, alternative game controllers?
This game jam will provide participants with the opportunity and support to apply the skills introduced through the Textile Game Controller Workshop Series (2018-2020) to fully developed e-textile game controller prototypes. After many weeks of being glued to our keyboards and mice, we are very excited to make new physical interfaces with you!

WHAT: A multi-session sprint focused on the development of textile game controller prototypes

WHEN: Due to the new remote format we’ve extended the game jam over several weeks. Saturday sessions are 4 hours long, some of which will be spent on Zoom and some of which will be spent making with optional contact available via Slack. The jam will conclude with a Show and Tell which will be open to other DMG members who are interested to see what was made!
