Data Live – Knight Mozilla Open News Fellowship Hack Jam
The aim of the event was to explore the themes of journalism and open data to create physical interactive experiences.
Tim, Al and Jack worked with Lee Murray and Greg Edwards of Nokia to create a game which was a mash up of “Have I got news for you” and “Whack-a-mole”. Headlines flash up on screen and the player must guess which newspaper they are quoted from in a whack-a-mole type gameplay. The object of the game is to question the politics and opinions embedded within journalism.
