Good Vibes Quantifier, 2012
Good Vibes Quantifier is a game about visualizing positive relationships within a group setting. Each player wears a "uniform", which consists of a shirt and glove that connects to a micro-controller that resides in a pocket in the shirt. The shirt also has LED lights embedded in the front to act as a scale. When players receive a pat on a back or a high five, this contact triggers the button in those respected areas and correlates with the amount of LEDs that light up on the shirt (eg: if you receive 5 of any combo of high fives or pats on the backs, the first light goes on, 10 high fives/pats on backs = 2 lights are on, etc, etc) If no high fives/pat on backs are received within a certain designated time, you will lose a light and so on. Once all the lights are turned on, a speaker (also residing on the shirt) will activate to play a song/sound and this will be a cue for all the participants to celebrate.
Good Vibes Quantifier encourages players to be aware of group dynamics when interacting with others.
