The Denkigami (from Denki = jap. Electric / Gami = jap. Paper) - are electronic hybrids between animal and machine. A set consists of an A4 sheet with a "pop-out" character and the associated electronic components. The Denkigami were printed with conductive ink and can be equipped with motors, light sensors or Arduinochips. By putting together the animals come to life and teach children and adults the basics of electronics in a playful way.
The lively color palette, as well as sympathetic characters are outside of Clichés and gender subdivisions. So we can appeal to a large audience with different skills, backgrounds and talents
We want to develop the format and the technology and make it available to a larger, possibly international audience, for example in the form of learning tools, toys or workshops.
The Denkigami were developed and tested with the support of Futurium Berlin.
Currently we are funded by the Berlin Startup Scholarship 'Creative Prototyping' at the University of the Arts.
Denkigami is not exhibiting at Wearable Europe 2020. They did exhibit at the following shows:
