Attention gamers! Join us this Sunday at the San Jose Mini Maker Faire to see and play variety of new and vintage video games from San Jose State University’s Computers in Art, Design, Research, and Education (CADRE) group! CADRE will have DIY video games made by the Game Development Club at SJSU and for visitors to try themselves!
The CADRE laboratory for new media arts is the hub of Digital Media Art where students, faculty, and visiting artists gather to explore the future of technology and art. CADRE faculty and students have participated in the evolution of art and technology for over 25 years!
CADRE’s games harken back to the old-school cabinet style arcade games of the 1980s –except you won’t have to bring a pocket full of quarters with you. They’ll also have some games that won’t require a joystick at all. Some games actually use electroencephalograms (EEGs) – devices used in medicine to measure electrical brain activity in the body – to interact with and control games. Plus, they will have interactive art activities, alternative game displays, and much more for visitors to interact and play with!
Come see CADRE’s games and much more on Sunday, September 6 from 10:00am-6:00pm at History Park! For tickets visit:
