This paper focuses on orchestration work in the first iteration of a mobile game called Day Of The Figurines, which explores the potential to exploit text messaging as a means of creating an engaging gaming experience. By focusing on orchestration we are especially concerned with the 'cooperative work that makes the game work'. While the assemblage or(More)
Pervasive gaming is a new form of multimedia entertainment that extends the traditional computer gaming experience out into the real world. Through a combination of personal devices, positioning systems and other multimedia sensors, combined with wireless networking, a pervasive game can respond to a player's movements and context and enable them to(More)
In current authoring tools for location-aware applications the designer typically places trigger zones onto a map of the target environment and associates these with events and media assets. However, studies of deployed experiences have shown that the characteristics of the usually invisible ubiquitous computing infrastructure, especially limited coverage(More)
The prevalence and characteristics of polyneuropathy were assessed using standard clinical and electrophysiological criteria in 39 consecutive outpatients with primary hypothyroidism, 15 of whom were previously untreated. Subjective complaints, mainly paraesthesiae, were recorded from 25 cases (64%) and objective findings supporting a clinical diagnosis of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the immunochemical distribution ofRantes chemokine and its correlation with HIV-p24 expression, in brains with HIV-related lesions. MATERIAL AND METHODS 17 HIV-positive cases of HIV-related brain lesions, 7 HIV-positive cases without cerebral HIV-related lesions (5 with opportunistic brain diseases), and 7 HIV-negative cases as controls(More)
We report a 14-year-old girl in whom a diagnosis of primary central nervous system lymphoma was confirmed while receiving growth hormone (GH) for GH deficiency, detected after presenting with short stature. MRI revealed an enhancing and thickened pituitary stalk with absence of the normal bright signal in the posterior pituitary. Regular MRI surveillance(More)
Several apparently idiopathic cases of so called 'senile chorea' have been recently redefined by the availability of brain MRI scan and the clinical introduction of genetic testing for Huntington's disease. Cases currently still regarded as idiopathic might yet be attributed to other medical conditions. Chorea as a unique manifestation of a primary(More)
DEAR EDITOR, We read with interest the technique described recently by Moran et al. 1 for controlling intraoperative haemorrhage during cutaneous nasal surgery. We would like to suggest a similar technique that we have found useful in our department for skin surgery in the temporal region. The superficial temporal artery runs through the temporo-parietal(More)
The motivation for this project was to find a way to give engineers, and the community affected by Civil Engineering work, information that is often difficult to visualise via computer screens, 2D plans or even scale models. We developed a Digital Scale Model using the existing expertise at the University of Nottingham on Space Geodesy and Mixed Reality.(More)
