Genspace is unveiling our new prototype of WetPong, the video game you play using swimming single-celled organisms this Saturday at World Science Festival.
DATE: Saturday, June 1st, 2012
TIME: 12 PM – 8 PM
PLACE: NYU Poly, 6 Metro Tech Center, Brooklyn, NY 11201
Based on the work of Professor Ingmar Reidel-Kruse of Stanford University, a joystick is used to control positive and negative charge within a chamber. Paramecia are attracted to negative electrodes, so the gamer can make them stampede across the screen, wiping out evildoers in their path! Fairgoers will be able to try out the game themselves this Saturday.
