Flippaper – Player-sketched pinball

A collaboration by artists Jérémie Cortial Roman Miletitch, Flippaper is an interactive pinball console in which players can draw their own playfield. Four coloured markers sit alongside the console (blue, green, red, and yellow) and a ‘grammar’ of strokes (dots, lines, closed shapes, filled shapes) are used to sketch out flippers, speed boosters, walls, and targets on paper, which is scanned by the console. Using this custom visual language to draw on familiar analogue mechanics, users can prototype as they play and iteratively adjust and tweak their design depending on how it performs.
