Kitchen Mania is a collective of novel game controllers that transformed from traditional kitchen tools.
The PulpPad consists of 4 juicers arranged in a directional pad layout, each with a non-invasive current sensor to trigger a keyboard event. While working with game developers to create a custom game, we have tested out the two PulpPads to play the popular game Dance Dance Revolution. It allows players to mix their own cocktails with freshly squeezed juice after finishing a dance battle.
The conROLLER is a customized rolling pin with a rotary encoder inside to determine directionality. Currently, this device is paired with the game Galaga. Players roll the pin to move the spaceship left and right; stomp the foot pedal to shoot and activate the two food processors to grate cheese and blend tomato sauce.
