Current Research

Jelly Polo: a sports game using small-scale exertion
Sports video games should be inherently competitive, but they fall short in providing true competition for the players.
KINECTWheels: Wheelchair Input for Motion-Based Video Games
The increasing popularity of full-body motion-based video games creates new challenges for game accessibility research.
Gaming for Fitness
Approximately one in two adults in industrialized countries are physically inactive. This lifestyle contributes to dramatically increasing rates of obesity.
