Popup Arcade

Jonas Johansson, Rose Hallgren


We are building a popup video game arcade with at least one custom built cabinet and dance pad station. Both cabinet and dance pad becomes illuminated beasts as they respond to your movement. Finally, video games at the Urban Burn, what took us so long?!

Full description of the concept

Everyone who's ever stepped into an arcade knows that it is a powerful audiovisual experience. For the Urban Burn we will build a custom arcade cabinet and dance pad station, and invite the participants to play! Not only this, but we will hack the games themselves so that when certain actions happen — Lights!! Play with a stranger, compete against a friend, or go on a solo mission - All is welcome.

We may also host a video game tournament!

How can other burners co-create with you?

Cabinets need to be painted and made into the magical machines they are.
