Another interesting development of Ars Electronica Center‘s own Futurelab is the Tug Of War installation simulating the real-life game of the same name. This is a very interactive installation as you are forced to pull the rope yourself against the computer.
This would be easy if the electronics were not supported by a strong pneumatic machine that can pull the rope really strong. Actually, it is easy to cheat as you are calibrating the system to your personal strength by pulling once before the actual fight commences. The display shows a funny line up of ballett dancers and other weird personalities in equally weird environments. This is about fun and is accompanied by excellence of production. Well done.
