Alex at Tinkerlog helped build this clever fundraising machine that takes a 2-Euro coin on a ride.

In January Kolle Rebbe, a German agency, asked if I could help them with their project. The idea was to have an interactive ad poster to collect money for Misereor, a german relief organization. The campaign is named “Mit 2€ viel bewegen”, which means something like “getting things moving with 2€”. You would donate a 2 Euro coin and the coin would travel through the poster, a bit like a marble in a marble machine. On the way to the bottom, the coin would trigger all kind of animations to show, what the money would be used for. Very cool idea!

The machine itself is cool, but I really like Alex’s behind-the-scenes shots of the installation in prototype form.
