Hi,

(Lynn, you are also on this list, right?)

"I'm wondering if you know of anyone that is developing games for use on
interactive touch-screens or tables. "

The HKU did several projects like that. Here are some of the ones that came
into mind first:

Apart-Spel:
http://www.apart-spel.nl/
http://kmt.hku.nl/~xchange/magazijn03/09_03.html (dutch HKU link)

Entertable/Entertaible games (HKU for Philips):
http://www.research.philips.com/initiatives/entertaible/index.html
http://kmt.hku.nl/~xchange/projecten/projmarkt2006/entertable.html (only
page I could find at HKU - only dutch, nothing much)
http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/ces/entertaible-lcdbased-board-gaming-from-philips-146788.php
(with pics of the HKU game)

Verhalentafel ("storytable" - not to be confused with Storytable(c) from The
Waag Society):
http://kmt.hku.nl/~xchange/projecten/verhalentafel/verhalentafel.html (only
dutch)

Something like that or... ?

Greets,

Ries

>> Hi.

>>I'm wondering if you know of anyone that is developing games for use on

>>interactive touch-screens or tables.

>>I recently learned about Microsoft Research about "Surface Computing" and

>>posted a demo from CNET/YouTube on one of my blogs at

>>http://interactivemultimediatechnology.blogspot.com.

>>

>>If you scroll down on my blog, you'll see some video demos of what I

>>worked

>>on for my projects last semester in my Human-Computer Interaction and

>>Ubiquitous Computing classes. The demos are on a wall-mounted touch

>>screen,

>>since I couldn't get my hands on a touch-table. The applications aren't

>>games, but could be used as the basis for educational games. Since I'm a

>>school psychologist, I'd like to develop educational/edutainment games for

>>interactive surfaces, especially for "at-risk" students and students who

>>have special needs, including those with autism spectrum disorders.

>>

>>I also think that therapeutic games designed for interactive touch-tables

>>would be an effective, relatively inexpensive way to assist young people

>>coming back from Iraq who have PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and

>>those who have TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

>>

>>Most of the young people in Iraq were gamers before they enlisted. Some

>>were

>>hooked into dreams of the military life through games such as "America's

>>Army". Why not use games to support our troops to help their transition

>>back home?

>>

>>Please let me know what you think.
