The Mike Eisenberg Memorial Ball Machine is the first of a new type of interactive ball machine sculpture that we have developed to more fully integrate into existing structures. This unique wall-mounted ball machine sculpture is human-powered, offering a fully interactive experience. The University of Colorado Boulder unveils this pioneering ball machine sculpture in honor of the late Professor Mike Eisenberg, who was a distinguished figure in the Department of Computer Science and Institute of Cognitive Science. As a revered educator and co-director of the Craft Technology Lab, Professor Eisenberg was known for fusing traditional children's crafts with cutting-edge technologies, fostering a unique realm for innovative learning experiences. This commemorative ball machine sculpture stands as a testament to Professor Eisenberg's profound contributions to education, technology, and the arts, perpetuating his legacy within the academic and artistic community at the University of Colorado Boulder.
