“One cup of juice” is a 2 player game that has a physical role and a mental role. The physical player becomes a machine by lying vertically on a platform simulating the mechanics of a juicer. The mental player is there to encourage the completion of the juicing. This relationship Introduces human emotions into the machine process including trust, encouragement, negotiation and compromise.
Objects of the game
The machine platform is horizontal and rises 2 feet off the floor. It is decorated with fruit imagery and supports the physical player (P1) juicing the orange.
The orange container is placed at the top right corner of the platform. The container will have two holes lined with rubber gloves that will allow the user to puncture the orange. The container functions as a measurement for the amount of juice the player has made.
The flashcards have key words the mental player (P2) will use to help the physical player(P1) win the game.
