    • As a final project of DIS II Stefka Penkova and I developed Catch me if you can, a little two player game developed in Java. Each player controls a rabbit via a Phidgets accelerometer mounted on the head (rabbit direction control) and a camera tracking up and down movement of the players feet (rabbit acceleration control). The goal of the game is to become the hunter player and then catch the hunted to score points. But watch out for the obstacles...
