Parsing Reality: Shaping Play with Connected Stuff

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This panel will explore how our actual lives and everyday stuff are becoming the most interesting platform for gaming.  We'll discuss, from different perspectives, the ways games are shaping our experience of a new blended digital subjective/object space. Portables, wearables, and connected stuff mean bits and networks are everywhere we go, giving us the possibility of a new deep awareness of our personal state. As Will Wright says, "we are at a turning point for mobile gaming, a shift for games from being about simulating reality to being about parsing reality."  Sensors everywhere and advances like bluetooth smart are turning everyday objects into an opportunity for play. The future of our playful sociality is "toys" that are a customization of our interactions with the actual world and everyday life. This panel will explore how games, robots, and playful experiences are the key to making our new habitat of digital/physical complexity more accessible and fun.
