Oyster-card responsive snowflake generator.

December 2008



For the 2008 Christmas season, Tinker decided to put its office window to good use. We built an RFID-enabled snowflake generator based on an original concept by John Nussey, Jon Hewitt & Andras Szalai,

Placed in our London office alongside a busy corridor, passer-bys could use their Oystercard to generate a unique snowflake. As people moved past the windows, the snowfall in the background was gently swayed by their movement, while the most recent person's snowflake slowly rotated in the foreground.
