Fun with Touch- Capacitive Fruit

The Museum of Art and Design

A familiar game with a fruity twist for MAD’s annual Gala

Bluecadet partnered with the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in New York to create a signature digital experience for the 60th annual Mad Ball gala. To entertain guests that included design luminaries, museum board members, and honorees, we created a memorable interactive experience that was true to the MAD mission: an innovative and unexpected celebration of design and the creative process.

Bluecadet based gameplay on arcade classic Pong. But instead of a traditional input mechanism, this game used an unexpected controller – capacitive fruit. Over the course of the evening, we composted two dozen apples, oranges, and bananas. We even peeled and ate one of our controllers when its authenticity was questioned.
