Crash Space Takes on the Machine

It’s that time again, time to take on the machine with the Hackerspace, Crash Space (and part two)! The team of Californians set out and successfully turned the front of their building into a musical instrument, similar to [David Byrne's] Playing the Building. When a pedestrian walks by they set off distance sensors, which in turn actuate mallets that strike particular objects to produce a tone. We were pleasantly surprised at how interactive the installation was, even if it didn’t sound that great. But will it be enough to beat out the previous two teams? And how will it do up against Artisans Asylum’s not what you’re thinking Breakfast Machine next time?

  1. The Family Guy clip is gold. The only cartoon that made me laugh harder than that did was the Beavis and Butt-head episode “Nosebleed”.

    Of course, half of the fun of watching Nosebleed the first time was my brother recovering from an appendectomy and trying unsuccessfully not to laugh.

  2. I’m watching the first video and wondering why there are so many circus freaks in it… Then I realize they are from California. LOL, mystery solved!
