Political Polls Have Never Been This Interactive

In the leadup to the next election, however long that will take, we’ll undoubtedly have to sit through lots of jibber-jabbering about the carbon tax, and mining, stopping the boats, and bla, bla, bla. A new app on iOS and Android lets you do what you always wanted to – engage in “physical heckling”.

Throw shoes, globes, and other things at the party leaders and watch their heads snap back. Neither seem to be as good at dodging bulky objects as they are at dodging Leigh Sales’ questions – and certainly not as good as George W. Bush. Of course they’ll never capitulate to your catapulting, but you might find it satisfying nonetheless.

You still can’t hit the face of the faceless men, but you can give the boys wearing blue ties a walloping. Julia wanders around, too. Whatever your preference (The Libs, ALP, or neither), the app will track who you snap and aggregate the results into a nation-wide poll.

The app comes from Melbourne-based developer Andrew Hill of Mesmer Mobile. Check it out here for iOS and here for Android.
