For this year’s festival, we’ve decided once more to bring back our very successful glitch.jam workshop! We’ve held this workshop each year during Vector, and it’s always a packed to capacity, lively and engaging time!
What’s a Glitch.Jam? It’s part-workshop/ part jam, where Team Vector will walk you through the basics of circuit bending battery operated / plug and play gaming devices. We’ll show you how to crack them open, and how to employ a variety of techniques to create your own game glitches!
We supply everything you need: the game consoles, tiny screwdrivers, alligator clips and leads, potentiometers,wires, soldering irons (and will help you with soldering if you need it), old TVs, and some VCRs to record your glitches.
The workshop fee is $15, which helps us cover the costs of supplies for each participant. Due to limited space and resources, the total number of spots in the workshop is 10 people.
Here’s a video of some work from a previous Glitch.Jam:
