Client: Yale University - Department of Mathematics

Date: September 2016

Duration: 35 man-days

This prototype, based on an idea of our client, is designed for use in a class setting and reinforces basic knowledge of math functions for incoming undergraduate students at Yale. In an artillery-style game, two people battle each other using function graphs. First, both players place traps on a grid. Second, they take turns to combine playing cards and form a function. Then they unleash it to destroy the other player’s traps.

wE-MOVE: Shapes and Rhythm prototype

Date: Dec 2015 - Jun 2016

Duration: 30 man-days

Tagged ,

A fun rhythm-based game as a replacement for conventional mirror therapy, for rehabilitation of fine hand motor skills. In Shapes and Rhythm, the players have to position their hands so they fit certain hand posture shapes, without hitting the edges. By using Virtual Reality in combination with the Leap Motion sensor, players are tricked to believe that their disabled hand is performing the right motions, speeding up the recovery process. The prototype includes in-game data collection, for a pilot study at Ghent University.
