  • Playing Immersive Games on the REVERIE Platform

    REVERIE (REal and Virtual Engagement in Realistic Immersive Environments) [1] is a multimedia and multimodal framework, which supports the creation of immersive games. The framework supports the creation of games integrating technologies such as 3D spatial audio, detection of the player's body movement using Kinect and WIMO sensors, NPCs (Non-Playable Characters) with advanced AI capabilities featuring various levels of representation and gameplay into an immersive 3D environment. A demonstration game was developed for REVERIE, which is an adapted version of the popular Simon Says game. In the REVERIE version, a player tries to follow physical instructions issued by two autonomous agents with different degrees of realism. If a player follows a physical instruction correctly, they are awarded one point. If not, they are deducted one point. This paper presents a technical overview of the game technologies integrated in the Simon Says demo and its evaluation by players with variable computer literacy skills. Finally the potential of REVERIE as an immersive framework for gaming is discussed, followed by recommendations for improvements in future versions of the framework.

  • Enhancing User Engagement in Immersive Games through Multisensory Cues

    In this article, we report on a user study investigating the effects of multisensory cues on triggering the emotional response in immersive games. Yet, isolating the effect of a specific sensory cue on the emotional state is a difficult feat. The performed experiment is a first of a series that aims at producing usable guidelines that can be applied to reproducing similar emotional responses, as well as the methods to measure the effects. As such, we are interested in methodologies to both design effective stimuli, and assess the quality and effect thereof. We start with identifying main challenges and the followed methodology. Thereafter, we closely analyze the study results to address some of the challenges, and identify where the potential is for improving the induced stimuli (cause) and effect, as well as the analytical methods used to pinpoint the extent of the effect.

  • Semi-autonomous digitization of real-world environments

    In recent years, the computational power and graphics capabilities of our computers and gaming consoles has advanced to the point that we can render photo-realistic realworld environments in real-time. This capability has been utilized to make immersive games, serious games, and simulations. While computers and consoles are affordable for the consumer, the technology used to scan environments can be too expensive or time-consuming for most developers. In this paper, we seek to find a viable low-cost alternative to these expensive technologies by analyzing the efficacy of cheap hardware (Kinect and personal cameras), computer vision algorithms (KinectFusion and structure- from-motion), and post-processing tools (MeshLab) in the context of a popular free game engine, Unity. Our results demonstrate workflows that are viable for the needs of many developers.

  • Trends and future research priorities on networked media

    Summary form only given. The current media landscape is characterised by an explosion of massively distributed digital objects, by a growing share of user generated content and an ever increasing quality of professional content (digital cinema, ultra high definition TV, immersive games, 3D, amongst others). This is compounded with new consumption modes and userspsila demands for new services, such as ubiquitous access on demand, social and community media, content personalisation and more intuitive and easier methods for content creation and retrieval. This requires moving from content to context and from a traditional broadcasting approach to personal and on-demand media access. The above trends have a profound impact also on the infrastructure and the access technologies required, for example content awareness and advanced methods, tools and systems enabling more intuitive content creation and multimedia-based search for content are to become basic elements of the future 3D Media Internet. The European Commission is spearheading new areas of research, from basic technologies to service integration and applications. Innovative domains, such as video or 3D object search, next generation of P2P, end to end 3D video delivery and immersive media experiences are some of the topics that the current RD projects are addressing. In parallel new research opportunities are being explored as they should lead to new technology breakthroughs and business opportunities. This is the way to ensure Europe will be able to play an important role in the future networked media world, as we are fully aware that beyond a key technology we are addressing a major industrial and cultural challenge for Europe.

  • Motivational Impact of Virtual Reality on Game-Based Learning: Comparative Study of Immersive and Non-Immersive Approaches

    It is fact that technology has positively influenced educational field, like the education based on digital games. Besides that, one of the technologies that has gained recent notoriety is Virtual Reality, that can provide disruptive approaches of interaction on games. Even that the approach to learn using digital games is very motivating, it is not known the effectiveness of this method using immersive devices. The usage of Virtual Reality applied to educational games may improve the learning process and also represent an innovation in terms of education. This work compares the motivational impacts of the usage of immersive and non-immersive games with students, performing some experiments on NAVE Recife.

  • FaceBo: Real-time face and body tracking for faithful avatar synthesis

    This paper introduces a low-cost framework capable of combining both real-time markerless face and body tracking for faithful avatar embodiment in Virtual Reality (VR). We discuss suitable hardware and software solutions and present a first prototype. This work lays the technological basis for further research on the importance of the appearance and behavioral realism of avatars, e.g., for the illusion of virtual body ownership, for social interactions in VR, as well as for VR entertainment applications (immersive games or movies).

  • Assessing the Experience of Immersion in Electronic Games

    Despite the definition of immersion still being a source of controversy, it is generally accepted as a quality that turns experiences more appealing. Modern electronic games stand out as a notably immersive media, especially when the recent advances in consumer-level virtual reality hardware are taken into account. Development of immersive games requires not only a theoretical background usually found in literature but more practical guidelines for assisting developers to endow their experiences with actual immersion. In this paper, we investigate specific features that confer the quality of immersion to an electronic game based on the analysis of titles the audience consider as immersive. We developed a prototype of an immersive game based on these features. Comparative evaluation of our prototype and the selected titles suggests that six features were able to provide an immersive experience in games.

  • Real-Time Immersive Table Tennis Game for Two Players with Motion Tracking

    Presented in this paper is a novel real-time virtual reality game developed to enable two participants to play table tennis immersively with each other's avatar in a shared virtual environment. It uses a wireless hybrid inertial and ultrasonic tracking system to provide the positions and orientations of both the head (view point) and hand (racket) of each player, as well as two large rear-projection stereoscopic screens to provide a view-dependent 3D display of the game environment. Additionally, a physics-based ball animation model is designed for the game, which includes fast detection of the ball colliding with table, net and quick moving rackets. The system is shown to offer some unique features and form a good platform for development of other immersive games for multiple players.

  • Designing immersive affective environments with biofeedback

    Serious games have been recognized in many application areas such as heath, education and training. Designing interactive games responsive to user emotions improves their effectiveness and user acceptances. A major factor in user interaction is the emotional reaction to game scenarios, which has motivated us to analyze immersive games using biofeedback. In this article, a graph-based model is presented to design interactive games in a systematic way. This model is combined with biofeedback such as autonomic nervous system variables to evaluate user emotional reaction to different stimuli. The analysis should be used as a guiding principle for designing serious games. Oculus Rift DK2 is used in experiments to provide immersive virtual reality with affective scenarios. The experiments demonstrate the ability to induce measurable and differentiate emotions.
