New York Hall of Science approached Collab to create an experience that would promote Maker Faire at the Museum.
Create an experience that combines the educational elements that New York Hall of Science presents, with a fun and interactive family activity, promoting Maker Faire.
An installation that combined an educational experience and a branded Maker Faire take home piece. We created a booth called Electric Doodle, and marketed it as a new way to create art by doodling in the dark. The booth combined electronics, photography and art so visitors could draw a design in the dark booth. Kids took the with their clothespin and LED light and the booth would capture it using slow shutter speeds of the installed camera and print the final doodle onto a Maker Faire branded paper.
By using an LED (Light-Emitting-Diode), a battery, and a simple everyday clothes-pin, you can Doodle in the dark!
Kids and adults found the experience mesmerizing, fun and entertaining. So much so that lines during the 3 weekends of the installation were more than an hour long every day.
