Happy Halloween!

Lorna Moir - November 4th, 2013

Big thanks to Becci and Tiff for masterminding a brilliant Halloween party, with the help of Hannah too the ground floor looked awesome! So awesome that the decorations are still there. maybe it’ll be like our Team Rubber Christmas tree and just stay up for the next 12 months until it’s relevant again.

There was a very impressive effort in terms of Halloween costumes, even if some of us were dashing around Primark in a bit of a last minute panic on Wednesday night.I think Christine’s ‘sharknado’ outfit took the imaginary most brilliant costume crown.

Quite a few rounds of beer / vodka / wine pong were played…

pong Happy Halloween!

We also had zombie shoot out games, creepy bad old film screenings, a sudden delivery of pizza courtesy of Mr Barrell, lots of decapitated doll body parts floating around and some ducks were shot to death by deer hunter Max’s toy gun….

duck shooting Happy Halloween!

In summary, an awesome halloween night and a very quiet Friday morning 🙂

Bristol Playable City Award winner has been announced

Lorna Moir - January 24th, 2013

Watershed’sPlayable City Award captured our collective imaginations from the minute we first heard about it, and so we were delighted to becomea sponsor. We’ve been honoured to be a part of the Award as it embodies the coolness of our hometown, Bristol.

Watershed has now announced the winning proposal,Hello Lamp Post.Congratulations go toPAN,Gyorgyi Galik andTom Armitage,the creative team behind the idea. This is an interactive project that embodies the playable’ ethos. Apparently, every postbox, bench, bollard and storm drain in Bristol has a code on it (who knew?). When Hello Lamp Post is up and running in summer 2013, people will be able to text the code to a certain number to engage those objects in conversation, such as:

Our work is all about cool stuff like this – using technology to connect people with things, governments and each other. We can’t wait to see how Hello Lamp Post will connect people to Bristol in such an imaginative and intimate way. Everyone with a mobile phone will be able experience the project, and find previously lifeless and ignored objects endowed with personalities and feelings.

Roll on, summer!

Korean Lazer Ball – yeah!

- September 26th, 2008

Hey all!

JessG here – n00b blogger for the TeamRubber blog. Just thought I’d put up a little note about the TeamRubber Korean Lazer Ball experience from last Sunday @ Igfest. Lovely Helen told us all about this a few weeks back and we all wanted to join in with gusto. And join in we did!

Alex: Yeah!

alex yeah Korean Lazer Ball   yeah!

After much planning (not!) we decided that uniforms might be a good idea, as there was a prize for the best costumes for the KLB tournament. So we spent some time on Thursday/Friday coming up with some concepts and I got to work on ’em over the weekend – if you ask me, I think they look rather spiffy:

klb go team Korean Lazer Ball   yeah!

The team was made up of myself, Matt Wilkes, Ant George, Alex Pitkin and Heather Craggs (who has been on maternity leave recently, so good on her for joining in, even with the little one in tow!) and we rocked peoples socks – there was even a cheering section for “TeamRubber” which spurred us on, we thought, towards victory.

klb a happy moment Korean Lazer Ball   yeah!

But it wasn’t meant to be; unfortunately, we didn’t win :(. We were beaten 22-26 – the “winning” team came up from behind in the last like 10 seconds. But we did win the award for best costume XD! Check it out:

Well, I don’t have much more to say for now, so I’ll leave you with some more shots from the day:
