Description of Ambient execution
Inspired by three new electric flavours and Mountain Dew’s affiliation with extreme sports, we mixed electricity with skateboarding and built a 600m2, fully-functioning pinball machine you could ride.
The machine featured a 13m high backboard, bumpers, flippers, tunnels, and a plunger to launch you in. Throughout we wired in sensors, sounds and lights to score your run just like a pinball game.
Enlisting three sports pros to help design it, we made sure the machine had the right flow and appealed to all levels of skaters.
The result was an “electric” design that was distinctly pinball, yet unmistakably Mountain Dew.
