What will happen in your session?

Together with the people attending MozFest, we want to create an interactive installation during the two days of the conference. This project will be based on Paper Programs which is a programming environment that brings coding to the physical world.

Each program is a piece of paper.


this program draws a blob onto itself

Papers can interact with each other


the color picker paper changes the color of the blob

Papers can interact with the physical environment


this paper draws particles whenever it sees a marker

The setup works with a camera which tracks the papers and a projector which can project things onto the paper

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

We want to introduce children to coding in a physical environment. Paper Programs encourages learning by doing. Initially, kids can get familiar with the system by just interacting with existing papers. Next, they can learn how a single paper in the system works and how they can modify it or even create their own papers. It's also possible to create new things by combining existing papers. Because all the papers exist in the same physical space, the system encourages collaboration and building stuff on top of the papers which other people have already created. The final result of the festival will be an interactive collage which combines all the papers people have built over the weekend into a single installment.

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

We will bring our own projectors and the truss system to mount them.
Here are pictures how the setup will look like. In the picture the second arch (which is the same size) is hidden behind the projection screen on the left.

It would be great if you could provide 2 tables with chairs to put under the arches.

Time needed

All weekend, as an installation, exhibit or drop-in session
