Noisy Jelly

Extra

Prototype game Noisy Jelly by French design students Raphaël Pluvinage and Marianne Cauvard of ENSCI Les Ateliers, Paris, actively encourages gamers to play with their food to generate new sounds.

First players make jellies, mixing water with agar agar and colouring agents, before placing them on a board game fitted with a capacitive sensor (which measures electrical charge). Once touched, the jellies trigger different sounds based on how hard they’re manipulated and their electrical conductance – affected by salt concentration, size and shape. The aim is to investigate the aesthetics of malleable materials used to manipulate electronics.

Check out Unforgettable Ingestibles and The Truvia Voyage of Discovery to see fantastic jelly creations by London-based gastronomic duo Bompas & Parr.
