The Interactive Playground Pathway was a pathway for outdoor play that reacts when you step across it. In an attempt to capture the strength of time-tested playground installations and emerging, popular interactive exhibits, we designed a simple prototype to explore the problem space of outdoor playgrounds in the digital era. When a child walks or runs through the pathway, it reacts to their steps along her journey.
