Media Computing Project

Research Theme

In WS11, this lab will be about enhancing mobile interactions with a kinect sensor placed in a static environment.
You will explore different ways to combine those two and develop a fully running prototype of a collaborative game oriented towards groups of two.
Apart from the engineering challenges you will have to solve the following questions:
  • where is the display
  • what kind of input can the mobile device provide
  • what kind can the kinect provide
  • what kind of input feedback should be provided
  • how are the users visualized
