First-year students' paper chase: a mobile location-aware multimedia game
The latest achievements in the field of mobile networks and ubiquitous computing enable the integration and combination of technologies like Internet, Java, and multimedia in a new kind of application that employs distribution, wireless networking, localisation, and movement—mobile locationaware multimedia games. The approach presented is an innovative re-invention of a paper chase/scavenger hunt as a mobile location-aware game. The video demonstration illustrates the technical foundation and the system design of the mobile game. We also show the fun and the action of the game following some students when they play the game on our university campus. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.5.1 [Information Interfaces and Presentation]: Multimedia Information Systems; K.8 [Personal Computing]: Games General Terms Design, Experimentation, Human Factors Keywords location-aware mobile games, physical navigation, geo-referenced multimedia, auditory, and graphical user interface
