World's Largest Game of Operation
Operation is probably the only game that’s as much fun to lose as it is to win. That’s why, when we were asked to create the world’s largest version of the beloved classic for Allegheny Health Network (AHN), our goal was to make the entire experience larger than life.
The game was to be the centerpiece of an interactive exhibition that could travel to regional events and help raise awareness of AHN’s robust surgical capabilities. Before construction began, we created a virtual 3D model. This allowed us to consider and optimize each of the game’s components, which were then produced via digital fabrication. For ease of transport, we built the game to breakdown into four sections, each on wheels. In keeping with the theme of oversized fun, we designed the game’s jumbo tweezers to buzz, vibrate, and light up as a way of really letting you know when you’ve failed in your attempt remove the patient’s funny bone.
