Abstract:

Although optical tracking systems greatly facilitate co-located multiplayer gaming experiences, they offer somewhat limited input and output modalities for increased player interaction. This paper presents MoCo, a framework for integrating mobile devices into a floor-based gaming environment to utilize their sensors and input/output capabilities. Two game prototypes, LazorLab and LazorArena, demonstrate how mobile devices are integrated into an application with a custom floor-projection and laser-tracking system.
