Toy Ideas: Blocky Talkies
After hearing so many interesting ideas from my classmates—adult furniture with kid-friendly undersides and crannies, action figure/toy car point-of-view filmmaking for kids—I have an idea which I’ve started to mock up in Flash. I can’t seem to get the idea of glowing blocks out of my head. I know, I know, it’s about as hackneyed an ITPism as there is, but maybe I’ll do it differently!
I sketched up a quick prototype (ok, not that quick) that demonstrates the behaviors of my glowing blocks, namely, that they glow a different color depending on which face is up and that when their color changes, nearby blocks respond by averaging colors with them.
