Hotaru Prototype #2 Playtesting with Kaho Abe

Join former Eyebeam Computational Fashion Fellow Kaho Abe to playtest Hotaru Prototype #2, a two-person cooperative wearable playful experience. This is the continuation of Kaho’s exploration into Costumes as Game Controllers with Hotaru. A playtest is a chance to beta test this game in progress and provide feedback directly to the artist.


Kaho Abe is a Media Artist and Game Designer, and currently the Artist in Residence at the NYU-Poly Game Innovation Lab. Her work primarily consists of physical playful interactions that are designed to bring people together face to face with the use of technology. More recently she has been exploring Costumes as Game Controllers and teaches classes at NYU-Poly and an afterschool program at Eyebeam about building custom controllers for games and game design.

Hotaru Prototype #2 is supported by Eyebeam and the NYU-Poly Game Innovation Lab.
