Social Dance GamesResult under "Play Spaces"
In collaboration with Movinto Fun, we developed a set of game concepts for the BodyBug, a playful device that inspires movement. The goal of our project was to develop concepts that inspired social interaction in a group of dancers that all use the BodyBug. Compared to previous studies of BodyBug games, our games inspired players to move more freely and interact with each other in more playful ways. However, the more strict games were perceived as less fun than the games that let people move freely. One of these games, the 'join my move' game, is now included in the commercial version of the BodyBug, the Oriboo.
