Rotobooth shots from the Awesome Foundation Party @ Babycastles

Here are a couple Rotobooth shots from tonight’s Awesome Foundation NYC Party at Babycastles.  Babycastles, an independent video game arcade, were the co-hosts of the party and the recipients of the latest $1000 grant from Awesome NYC.  Rotobooth, a project by fellow ITP alum Mike Kelberman, is an automated photo booth that uploads pictures directly to Flickr.
