Rock, Paper, Superpower is an interactive activation we originally created for TIFF's Boombox Heroes vs Villains Halloween Party 2019. Costumed contestants duked it out in a superpower-strutting video-battle inspired by Rock, Paper, Scissors. Contestants first choose their attack (rock, paper, or scissors) by inputting them into a custom interface we designed. When the battle begins, they strike a super pose and their attack is revealed as a superpower while facing off on a Gothamesque rooftop. By the end of the night, Villains had the higher score. Any Heroes out there up for a rematch to save the day?
This work used Max / Jitter as well as the Kinect V2 (Dale Phurrough's dp.kinect2 object), and an Arduino with custom electronics.
