The idea of this future game started from the fact that our present work is more and more based on brain work, with less time dedicated for sport activities. These jobs are more complex and stressful. Based on this observation, I’ve imagined an active way to do sports in the future, with the help of an AR environment.

The BALL asset in the game is an AR projection on the player’s retina, and the BAT a hybrid with the handle real, and the active end an AR projection.

The gameplay is simple. “A!R SMASH” things around and distress in the process by doing physical activities and score points. The system monitors the levels of cortisol in the player body and gives him dynamic challenges based on sensors readings. The playground happens on an AR layer, with no harm or destruction on the Real environment.

I am honored to see that the judges  liked the concept  and the design of the game, making it the winner of the contest.
