   Scorpiodrome  
 

The SCORPIODROME is a mixed reality computer game designed for small groups of children aged 11-14.

Taking the best of virtual and physical worlds, we set out to make a car driving game with remote controlled toy cars on a physical landscape, augmented with virtual game elements and various special effects.

The SCORPIODROME is an action game played by 3 players who each control one Scorpio. The main goals for players is to drive their Scorpio as fast as possible over virtual checkpoints that are scattered on the physical landscape, to collect virtual diamonds scattered on the terrain and to make the life of other Scorpios "difficult".

Project status: fully working prototype.
Duration: nine months.
Publications: ACM SIGCHI ACE 2005
