Innovative design MA student Lee Wei Chen from Kingston University has created a game concept that as you play will wash your clothes. The idea came to Chen when she realised that playing video games wasn’t really providing her with skills in the real world. ‘I realised that the skills I had developed in the virtual world were useless in the real world. I wanted to make them useful,’
The game/washing machine Chen has created looks like an arcade style video console, but the bottom half of the unit is a washing machine. If you play the game and win your clothes will be washed, play bad and your clothes will remain stinky.
Chen’s concept will be on display this week alongside other Kingston University MA students course work as part of London Design Festival at Tent, the Truman Brewery, from September 22 – 25th
