Interaction Design: Serious Games

What might it look like if we could interact with digital interfaces in more interesting ways besides typing, scrolling, and swiping?

We interact with technology through our keyboards, mouses, and increasingly, our fingertips. Why are these physical interactions with digital interfaces so limited? Could we imagine more interesting ways to interact? 

Serious Games is an exploration of what it might look like if we mix digital and physical interfaces – in the most ridiculous way.  The player of a game wears a physical garment that allows her to control the game using her head and wrists. A learning point is that although it may look ridiculous, moving your head may be more intuitive than pressing the right arrow button or swiping right. 

Built with Unity and Arduino.
