Furrowed Brow (2010)

Furrowed Brow is a wearable game that simulates creases in the player's forehead that move from side to side with the tilt of his or her head. It uses an Arduino board, LCD screen and accelerometer attached to a wig. The game is simple: the furrow is represented by a jagged line made of ASCII characters. The player is either trying to catch or avoid the "o" that drops from the top of the screen. When the "o" hits a crease, that part of the crease disappears until there are none left. It can be played solo, in the mirror, or with a second player. There is another game with two furrows. It is casual in the sense that you can play it while brushing your hair. The creases again move in the direction that the player's head tilts. Avoid letting them touch the edges of the screen.
