Tentacles is an application made up of two parts. A large-scale, responsive projected environment displaying avatars in a shared space and an application that turns your mobile device into a remote controller. Together, these two features of Tentacles enable individual viewers or passersby to explore, improvise and play in a multi-user, location-based, game-like experience projected into public spaces.
