Smart Gaming

With the “Smart Gaming” project the department of Media and Computer Science and Entertainment Computing explores new game concepts for Smart TVs in cooperation with the independent game developer Nurogames from Cologne.

The combination of different devices such as smartphones and tablets is to enable new interaction concepts, to support common game activities in the family circle as well as the circle of friends and therefore to evoke positive social game experience. Raised questions, such as how various devices can be connected, which game combinations and illustration facilities are available and how a preferably intuitive control can be achieved, are analyzed in conceptual as well as technical ways. The complete official press release of the project can be found here.
