Magpie Bridge

Designer: FOO Yee Qi

This is an interactive table installation about the ancient love story in China is Cowherd and Weaver (牛郎织女). In order to form the magpie bridge, two players are required to hold their hands and find the paired stars. When they touched the paired stars, the magpies will fly in and form a bridge.

The designer used makey-makey, an electronic invention tool, and a toy that allows users to connect everyday objects to computer programs. Using a circuit board, alligator clips, and a USB cable, uses closed-loop electrical signals to send the computer either a keyboard stroke or mouse click signal.
