As part of a visit from our lectorate to the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), we started research in group-computer interaction. Together with Floyd Mueller from the Exertion Lab of RMIT, we speculated how in the future smart objects (in this case drones) would be able to play with us vice versa. We intend to work on this for the following years, which results in a PhD dissertation.
The Exertion Games Lab researches the future of play and games in order to understand how to design better interactive experiences, in particular we focus on games that put the human body in the center of the experience. We draw from interaction design, sports, psychology, human-computer interaction (HCI) and embodiment thinking to contribute to human-player interaction.
