“Gainer” is a tool kit for creating interactive works or interfaces that involves physical input and output in a short period of time. To create works, users combine this kit with a breadboard, which is used in trial production of electronic circuits, and freely modify the circuit by trial and error. “Gainer Kaidan” was developed through a collaborative project, in which members from diverse backgrounds used Gainer as their common language.
