BoxOfWords is a hand-held, cigarette-box sized electronics project for improvisational theatre practitioners.
The purpose of the project is to offer randomized word suggestions during an improv workshop or a training session.
BoxOfWords has a memory card reader, control buttons and a small LCD screen. The improviser selects his preferred word file (emotions, locations, professions…) and can call up new randomized suggestions to the LCD screen with a press of a button.
The project was built as a present to Trent Pancy, the organizer of the Third Annual Finland International Improv Festival.
