I said Stay Down!!!

Wonder Twin Powers, Activate the Park!

UPDATED: Videos after the jump!

The newbies at OCAD are presenting their Activate the Park! installation once again tomorrow, April 4, between 3 and 6pm. During this time the dynamic environments that first year interaction design students have created will be available for you to totally screw around with at your leisure.

Seriously, there's going to be Human Foosball. Think about it. I mean really, think hard about it.

Oh yeah.... more after the jump.

Aside from the utter awesominity of that specific installation, each of the 15 classes involved will putting up all sorts of other nifty interactive works. Giant articulating Jenga Towers? Check. Cave paintings in a modernized floating box? Check. Interactive inflatable balloons you get to walk into? Check. There's also a bunch of weird "dirty little secret" projects, which makes one wonder how much adultery OCAD students think is happening in our fair city. If anyone would care to share those dirty little secrets in the comments section after their trip through the installations, we *promise not to tell anyone...

Activate the Park!

Show's over now, and video of the secrets room and some all too brief human foosball lie below. Thanks Kris M.!
