Plant Pinball

Plant pinball is a game that teaches how plant roots grow to reach water, highlighting their special abilities to regenerate and reorient themselves in the face of obstacles.

Plant Pinball is a project for Playful Communication of Serious Research, a class taught at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program in the Spring of 2013 by Helene Alonso.

The project is inspired by research by Ken Birnbaum, Associate Professor of Biology at NYU.

Requires the Flex SDK 4.6.

Version 1.0 Known Issues
