Earth: A Primer

Entrant 2016

Chaim Gingold


Discover how our planet works through play! Create volcanoes, sculpt mountains, and control the forces of nature with your fingertips.

Earth Primer defies existing genres, combining aspects of science books, toys, simulations, and games. It is a new kind of interactive experience which joins the guided quality of a book with open ended simulation play. A key motivation behind the creation of Earth Primer is to model a new genre for other designers to borrow from, helping our culture reimagine the possibilities inherent to simulations and interactive books.
