Smoquito

A simple, yet enaging interactive video installation raising awareness on social smoking, Smoquito is a combination of an art installation and a video game. The "player" (smoker) is hunting virtual mosquitos with his/her cigarette.

Smoquito uses a night vision security camera tuned to the infrared wavelength emmited by cigarettes. By tracking the cigarettes real time become controllers for the game.

Smoquito was on display several time in the Kitchen Budapest medialab and was invited to the art and technology exhibition of Alt Party 2009 - a demoscene conference about digital culture.
