Games for health

  1. 1. Bubble Drum Project<br /> As exhibited most vividly by the group from the Clem Burke Drumming Project during a presentation at the 2010 Games For Health Conference drumming can give the player a highly intensive form of exercise.<br />
  2. 2. The Bubble Drum Project was conceived to explore and experiment with an alternative "drum kit" that has been specifically designed to give a vigorous physical workout and develop prototype rhythm games that engage the player with challenging cognitive stimulation and also provide an instrument/interface to facilitate deeper musical expression that emphasizes dynamics, accents, creating polyrhythmic patterns and steady timekeeping.<br />
  3. 3. The following are several examples of prototype active rhythm games that were designed to demonstrate the bubble drum kit being used as a exergaming controller. <br /> NOTE: videos will start playing automatically <br />
  4. 4. Footprints<br /> the next video combines binary representation, rgb cube, hamiltonian paths, some combinatorial concepts in the form of patterns and variations, and all that jazz.<br />wayneshorter’scompositon is the musical piece that gets trampled upon in this parade/parody. . . <br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6.
  7. 7.
  8. 8.
  9. 9. polynome: >= 2 metromes<br />the next two videos demonstrate arhythmetic using a couple of variations of a flash app that’s nicknamed the “polynome”. the concepts of greatest common divisor and least common multiple are related in some way.<br />
  10. 10. Gcd(5,4) = 1<br />
  11. 11. LCM(7,4) = 28<br />
  12. 12. 100 hearts<br /><ul><li>The last example is a video of a guitar hero-ish styled flash app. The song was written by the late great pianist michelpetrucciani. As the player listens to the song they keep the beat by hitting the bass Drum, which Then generates a cardioid (seen as a red heart-shaped graph). As you keep the beat and count how many hearts go by, you’ll get a clue as to the name of this tune. </li></li></ul><li>
