New Synagogue: Hall

Robin Baumgarten

United Kingdom

Robin will explore the thriving experimental hardware game scene with its weird contraptions, strange arcade machines, and new controllers that push the boundaries of what games can be. He’ll talk about his own journey with the critically acclaimed Line Wobbler (which will also be playable at the festival!) from door stopper spring experiment to museum exhibitions.

Robin Baumgarten is a German London-based indie game developer. He’s a serial game jammer who works on mobile games and strange experimental hardware controllers, and also dabbles in artificial intelligence, photography and travelling. After starting out with mobile games, he now focuses on making and exhibiting custom hardware games such as Line Wobbler and Wobble Garden.
