A novel method for natural motion mapping as a strategy of game immediacy

2018 KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems  
In a game of fantasy, which is difficult to experience in real-life situations, the nature of the player's motion can increase the immersion of the game, which can contribute to utilization of players'  ...  The result of performing an experiment increased reality for the game player through a controller in the shape of the actual control, to increase focus in the game.  ...  The definitions of gaming experiences, mental model and motion mapping Immediacy experience as remediation strategy As a game's players can directly control their gaming experience, the user immersion  ...

One of the two strategies of remediation; the orher is (transparenr) immediacy. hypmtu-i A method of oiganizing and presenting text in the computer.  ...  However, the very fact that the images are in motion (in computer animation and virtual reality) suggests new strategies for achieving immediacy.  ...  Each of these strategies has a long and complicated history.  ...

The neural correlates of intertemporal decision-making: Contributions of subjective value, stimulus type, and trait impulsivity

Chandra Sekhar Sripada, Richard Gonzalez, K. Luan Phan, Israel Liberzon
2010 Human Brain Mapping  
Previous neuroimaging studies produced differing accounts of the functions of these regions, including that these regions: (1) are sensitive to the value of rewards discounted by a function of delay ('  ...  Conjunction analysis showed significant overlap in mPFC and PCC for the main effects of subjective value and stimulus type, indicating these regions may serve multiple distinct roles during intertemporal  ...  A conjunction analysis of the map of regions correlated with the DiffSV regressor and the map of regions more active in Immediacy Present trials (>Immediacy Absent trials) revealed common areas of activation  ...

Embodied Design of Dance Visualisations

Harry Brenton, Andrea Kleinsmith, Marco Gillies
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 International Workshop on Movement and Computing - MOCO '14  
Our approach is novel because the behaviour of the interactive visualisations is trained by a dancer dancing, rather than a computer scientist explicitly programming rules.  ...  This paper presents the design and implementation of a software platform for creating interactive visualisations that respond to the free-form movements of a non-professional dancer.  ...  CURRENT PROTOTYPE This section will describe the design of a third prototype that uses interactive machine learning based on the results of prototype 2 as a tool for designing motion to visual mappings  ...

Towards an immersive user interface for waypoint navigation of a mobile robot [article]

Greg Baker, Tom Bridgwater, Paul Bremner, Manuel Giuliani
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Inspired by virtual reality (VR) gaming, we propose a target selection method that uses the 6 degrees-of-freedom tracked controllers of a commercial VR headset.  ...  The results of the experiment showed that participants were able to learn how to use the novel system quickly, and the majority of participants reported a preference for waypoint control.  ...  SYSTEM DESIGN The proposed target selection strategy, is based on a method of locomotion called teleportation used in the VR gaming industry.  ...
