My Role: Writer, Content Developer, Prototyper, Tester
Description: This digital interactive was prototyped and developed over a period of six months. Visitors choose two natural materials to compete in a head-to-head battle of strength. Each material is compressed, pulled, then bent to its breaking point. The strength of everyday materials are referenced to help visitors understand each pressure read out. On the last screen, visitors are reminded of how each material is actually used in nature, explaining its strength in various areas.
