Pinball Game Generates Poems From News Headlines [Video]
Word-smithing is as easy as playing the classic arcade game using this interactive display.
Plinko Poetry is an interactive installation that sources headlines from the Twitter feeds of @nytimes and @FoxNews to create a constantly evolving piece of poetry.
The trending poetry machine was created by Inessah Selditz and Deqing Sun, two Master’s students currently enrolled on NYUs Interactive Telecommunications Program.
Plinko uses a combination of Python and Processing to scrape and display alternate scrolling lines of current tweets from the New York Times and Fox News – the raw material for the machine's poetry.
