Home / Projects / 4B Festival (Beer, Bourbon, BBQ, Bacon) - New Haven, CT

Captured Hashtags from Twitter, Instagram and Facebook posts to create a digital artifact.

Filed under: Prototype - CSS

We knew from registration that more than 90% of attendees had Instagram and/or Facebook.

Besides looking totally rad, it was gamified. Social posts helped fill a pint glass that would trigger a giveaway when full. A crowd formed around the admin table watching the wall. It was awesome.

This was my baby. My role was to develop the front-end and to build the mechanism for triggering the giveaway anouncement. I had a great designer and a genus back-end developer help out. I was the middle-man that chopped up the design, constructed the front-end framework, animated the beer pouring, and programmed the Arduino that presented the event announcement.
