Inspired by the Blade Runner, I created a wearable game controller for a emojicon game that I developed. Based on the player's running gestures the Emojicon “Dick Richard” runs, jumps, and stands. The goal is to catch good emojicon’s (star magic ☆ﾟand heart) and fight bad emojicon’s (disappointment Ծ_Ծ and cat =＾● ⋏ ●＾=).
This project is created in collaboration with Alina Balean and Ayanna Seals. We developed our own flex sensor and based on the gesture of running (closing and opening elbows) the game detects if the player is running, jumping, or standing.
