Public demonstration during an Ignite Show
« on: September 10, 2013, 08:38:13 AM »
Hi all!

   I'll be part on an Ignite Show in France and I would like to present the Makey Makey to the public (about 150 people who will be seated). Do you have ideas about a nice demonstration which would implicate our public ?

   Many thanks :D :D

   Florent.

Oh there are so many things to do with the MaKey MaKey! You could go through some of the other topics in the Ideas and the Show and Tell forum sections for inspiration though!

Hello,

   Thanks a lot for your answer. I'll take a look on other topics and I'll keep informed the community. We have a hackerspace in my work place, I'll let them have fun :D

Hi !

   I come back in order to give news about my presentation :) my goal during this Ignite Show was to present crowdfunding as one of the numeric tools in the service of a new industrial era : the makers one.

   The online communities which call more and more into question the hyper-consumption system, I decided to take the example of Coca Cola. I recorded a quotation of Karl Marx on iTunes « power belongs to those that control the means of production » and the idea was to trigger the reading of this quotation by taking the can. The effect was amazing, a striking voice guesting us to stop being simple consumers : become shaper industry owners of the 21th century and invent consumption trends which mean good for us.

   But…It flunked ! :) The Ignite format is particularly restrictive, I wasn’t able to proceed to this demonstration. I spoke a lot about the Makey Makey which has set off many curiosities. So I had the opportunity to make the demonstration later. We had a stand and it was really cool !

   You can find the video on youtube :

   I wish you a happy new year !

   Bye,
   FDL

Very cool!

Is there an English translation or English transcript available?

Happy New Year to you, too!

Bonne année et bonne santé!
