Contributions
initial idea / video planning + editing / Arduino coding support (bluetooth + LED)

Project accepted to Work in Progress corner at ACM TEI 2019

Mole Messenger is a pair of connected whack-a-moles that function as a communicative device.

They facilitate physical communication between children who are physically distanced (ex. siblings who live in different continents.)
