Students of Advanced Graphics and Interaction presented the drafts of their projects to an open audience as a partial examination in the course.
The four fully-functioning projects below are work-in-progress started on September 10 and presented on September 26, 2014.
|YA3, You Are a Tree, is an experience of creation through movement. A performer's body movements captured on a Microsoft Kinect map to the contortions of a growing tree for a meditative experience of creation and reflection.|
|2Pacs is a complementary collaborative game where two players armed with wii motes combine their forces to control a deranged Pac-man across a labyrinthine landscape while the ghostly usual suspects give endless chase. Each player has their own controller and view of the game and, together, they embody 2Pac.|
|In Space Survival, later called Thrust Yourself, a player embodies a space walker dying to get home... literally running out of oxygen. The player controls the space walker through a combination of Wii MotionPlus and nun-chuck and views space through the virtual reality of an Oculus Rift.|
|PodRacer is an immersive virtual reality game where the player controls a two-engine pod, as in Star Wars Episode 1, through two haptic controllers. Students used an Oculus Rift and two Novint Falcons.|
