Game design for new interfaces and new hardware

7 December 2019 @ 10:00 - 17:00


The teacher

A design-oriented masterclass that dives into new interfaces and hardware.

Lau Korsgaard will share practical experiences and insights from working on new platforms and emerging technologies from the past ten years: Wii, smartphones, Kinect, Move, Wii U, VR, Switch and AR all have their own specific affordances and constraints.

Through mini-post mortems of multiple projects and artistic experiments by NAPNOK and Copenhagen Game Collective Lau Korsgaard shows a methodology and mindset in tackling the ‘next big thing’ in game interfaces – whatever that is.

The participants will among other things learn about: identifying the core fantasy of a technology, doing bodystorming instead of brainstorming and using the input device as an output device as well.
