Mike Lazer-Walker

Founder - Playwith

Mike is a Berlin-based artist/engineer who makes interactive art, experimental games, and software tools. Most of his work focuses on using nontraditional interfaces to reframe everyday objects and spaces as playful experiences. He’s built projects as far-flung as a site-specific generative poetry walk, a game played on 19th century telegraph hardware, and a commercial board game that uses Amazon Alexa. In the past, he’s worked at companies like Pivotal Labs and Etsy, on products like Timehop and Words With Friends, and as a researcher in the MIT Media Lab's Playful Systems research group.
