  • 22. The Magic Circle of Games antonioperezrio.es“...the consequences of the activity are negotiable” (Juul, 2005)
  • 23. Games as:“Cognitive-Emotional Integration Engines”? Storytelling a significant feature of human culture Meaning making is important in Health and Wellbeing (Narrative Medicine) Games could help in health and wellbeing “Meaning Making” process
  • 24. Hamlet on the Holodeck“To rival the narrative richness of other media,then, a system of interactive storytelling mustbe able to stage both physical actions thatchange the fictional world and verbal acts thataffect the minds of its inhabitants andmotivate them to take action.” (Ryan, 2009)
  • 25. The Interactive ParadoxIntegration of the unpredictable, bottom-up input of theuser into a sequence of events that fulfills the top-downdesign conditions of narrativity“On one hand the author seeks control over thedirection of a narrative in order to give it a satisfactorystructure. On the other hand a participating userdemands the autonomy to act and react withoutexplicit autho- rial constraint.” (Aylett & Louchart, 2004)
  • 26. Meat Machines?Are you a Thinking person who Feels? ...or a Feeling person who Thinks?
  • 27. Physiological Computing -CategoriesBiofeedbackBiocybernetic adaptationBrain–computer interfacing
  • 28. Biofeedbackthe controller of a system can control a given variable ifinformation about that variable is made available to itnotion of humans being able to exert consciousinfluence over seemingly unconscious physiologyi.e. increasing “body awareness” - interoception more highly developed in performers, kinaesthetic learners, artists?
  • 29. Biofeedback examples
  • 30. Biocybernetic AdaptationBiocybernetic adaptation refers to the modification ofsystem’s functionality or appearance based on the real-time measurement of psychophysiology.Not biofeedbackRather an adaptive system that responds to user’schanging psychophysiological state e.g. fatigue, frustration
  • 31. Game Adaptation example
  • 32. Brain–computer interfacingChannels for direct command and communicationbetween psychophysiology and an output device (e.g.control of a cursor)Main focus of BCI research has been to developsystems to help people with disabilities (e.g. spinal cordinjuries)Issues extended training times need to sit style - movement artifacts
  • 33. BCI examples www.makeahistory.com/index.php/your-details/222-the- worlds-first-commercial-brain-computer-interface-
  • 34. Potential PhysiologicalVariables Outer surface of the Brain (electroencephalogram: EEG) Skeletal Muscles (electromyogram: EMG) Heart (electrocardiogram: ECG) Eyes (electro-oculogram: EOG, pupillometry: eye tracking) Blood pressure Respiratory patterns Skin conductance (galvanic skin response: GSR)
  • 35. Platform + Sensors
  • 36. “Cheaper” kit
  • 37. Do No Harm...Be Safe (ElectricalSafety, TrippingHazards)Don’t screw up yoursubjects (players) Mrs Inman
  • 38. Make Sure you have Quality Data
  • 39. Don’t Forget “In Game” Data- i.e. Reaction Times
  • 40. Caution...Intentions...Control...•“The philosophy of this new approach is principallyconcerned with machine perception of users’ affectivereactions.•Assumption that users respond to content and eventsoccurring during human–computer interaction, and that themachine detects these responses and adapts its behaviouraccordingly.•This may be making the mistake of assuming the machineis in charge.•It can be argued that this is not how emotion operates inthe real world. In human– human interaction, affect has anintentional communicative function.” (Ward & Marsden, 2004)
  • 41. Historical - Kunstphysiologie
  • 42. Physiological Aesthetics By the 1870s the new field of ‘physiological aesthetics’ burgeoned in pockets across Europe and North America, aiming, to ‘elucidate physiologically the nature of our Aesthetic Feelings’ and ‘to exhibit the purely physical origin of the sense of beauty, and its relativity to our nervous organization’. For many physiologists, the new evolutionary accounts of sensory functions suggested fresh possibilities for education of artists and artisans. (Allen, 1877)
  • 43. Physiologically Informed Art Used Aesthetic Protractor - “pleasurable angular distances”
  • 44. Science Fiction?
  • 45. 21st Century Reality
  • 46. Techno-Sublime: Post-Aesthetic?Interactive Media Observer becomes a Performer“Engagement can give rise to experiences of immersionin immediate sensation” (Bolt, 2007)“Critical Distance” (of traditional aesthetics) is lostMove towards appreciation of the “Immediacy ofSensation”
  • 47. When... &
  • 48. Convergence...Exciting! Interactive Media Performance Art Modern Dance Play Games Sports Performance
  • 49. Inter-Connected Triad Play (Experience)Reality (Model) Meaning (Effect)
  • 50. Triadic Game Development (Agile Methodology) triadicgamedesign.com
  • 51. Changing Approaches toPublic Health
  • 52. Supportive “Virtual” Environments? Compared to Physical Environments: Readily developed Lower cost Scaleable to population level
  • 53. Drivers Consumer Technology Expectations New Non-traditional forms of gaming New body movement sensors and controllers Increasing Mobile Functionality US Physical Activity Strategy - “Encourage...health e-games manufacturers...” Commercial Interest in Wellness
  • 54. Maximising Opportunities Experience Creation Integrated Design Approach Informed Wellness Behaviour Perspective Seamless Data Capture Social Media Linkage Cross-generational Game Play Scaleability, Perceived Value, Pricing & Affordability
  • 55. Potential Persuasive Features of Exergames Degree of authority Positive experience Develops skills Positive feedback Exercise more Praises the player accessible Progress chart General exercise tips Reflects the player Helpful suggestions Rewards progress Monitors usage Tailors exercise Negative feedback Visually attractive
  • 56. Exergame Design IssuesOverall game difficultyGame levelSkill of playerPostural balanceHand-Eye coordinationLimit to arm waving
  • 57. Exergames are Not All Equal in EEEnergy Expenditure y enc 6+ METs equ Fr 3-6 METs 2-3 METs Muscle Mass
