Abstract

Currently we see the emergence of the first commercial projector phones. Besides the standard use case of projecting media content, they are also promising as a platform for new types of mobile gaming. In this paper, we present a novel interaction concept for mobile projected gaming which leverages specifically a wall and the floor in the environment to provide a new type of semi-realistic augmented gaming. We discuss the challenges of the required sensing and present a preliminary bowling game prototype.
