Exhalation Game by Jason Huang, Bou-Yu Chen, Chin Ia Hung, Orilla Lin, Hal Maa, Jyun Siang Wang, Huang Shu Ting, Travis Lin

 

Orilla Lin knew this was an important moment. She leans in, takes a deep breath, then exhales with anticipation. The boat moves! Her motor and Lego mechanism glide effortlessly over the water and past the finish line. She and her seven teammates created Ai Dai Wan, an exhalation game that took home the gold. Last year, Chapters from over 65 countries participated in the 2015 BitOlympics to host 50 events generating over 100 submissions. This year, the celebration of invention, community, and play is back in action.
