The players are split into groups of 5-6 participants each. They are requested to design a human machine. There are only a few guidelines:

  • The machine must be connected.
  • It must use all members of the small group.
  • It must make a noise.
  • It can only use 3 feet, 2 hands that touch the floor (this may vary)
  • It must move from point A to B. (Mark the points.)
  • There are only 5 minutes to fulfill the task.

Debriefing questions

  • Where were the challenges in communicating? 
  • Were there differences between how each group member communicated or understood the others?
  • How did their preference influence this?
