Both of our student games from the Radical Games class and the Exertion Games Lab have been shortlisted to be presented at the research conference Fun and Games 2012 in Toulouse, France, in the Student Game Design Competition.
The games are Musical Embrace and Bubble Popper, and congratulations to the students involved!
The LumaHelm gets a lot of attention right now, today SBS filmed the LumaHelm for the World News program, including Sebastiaan skating with it! Furthermore, Wouter gave a phone interview about the LumaHelm to a Dutch radiostation, and tonight, both Alan and Wouter will talk about the Exertion Games Lab and the LumaHelm on RRR radio.
While Twitter is still trending Joggobot, The Age, Australia’s major newspaper, has already reported on our latest project, Wouter’s interactive helmet LumaHelm which features 104 LEDs and a bunch of sensors. The comments flogged in as soon as the story went online in the top news section (the online ‘frontpage’ equivalent) talking about cycling safety and the opportunities the LumaHelm affords (Photo: Craig Sillitoe).
Chad Toprak and Florian ‘Floyd’ Mueller speak at the Graduate Research Conference on 14 June 2012 at RMIT University on what it means to do research in the lab and what the expectations are and associated benefits.
Channel 10’s Breakfast TV show will be filming the Joggobot tomorrow morning, Wed 13 June, 7.50am right outside the Exertion Games Lab. The interview with Chad and Floyd will be streamed to the Sydney studio and from there broadcasted live, so tune in tomorrow morning!
