The DIY Tagtool is a performative visual instrument used on stage and on the street. It serves as a VJ tool, a creative video game, or an intuitive way of creating animation.

The system is operated collaboratively by an artist drawing the pictures and an animator adding movement to the artwork with a gamepad. The design achieves virtually unlimited artistic complexity with a simple set of controls. Find out how to build your own DIY Tagtool here!.

The project was initiated by OMAi GmbH as a non-commercial grassroots endeavour. Their focus has since shifted to making Tagtool for iPad, an app that sets a new standard for multiplayer live art.
