Emergent game formats, such as machinima, that use game worlds as expressive 3D performance spaces have new expressive powers with an increase of the quality of their underlying graphic and animation systems. Nevertheless, they still lack intuitive control mechanisms. Set direction and acting are limited by tools that were designed to create and play video games rather than produce expressive performance pieces. These tools do a poor job of capturing the performative expression that… Expand

TLDR
This paper presents a novel interaction technique for 3D character animation control that does not need to interact with typical mouse and keyboard to control an animation, but interacts with a tangible object attached with several visible markers. Expand
Tangible Interface for Controlling Toys-To-Life Characters Emotions
TLDR
This work presents a novel interface to be used in performative play that is composed by a physical toy with an attached sensor device, and enables users to control the emotions of a virtual character. Expand
Experiments in the use of game technology for pre-visualization
TLDR
This overview paper outlines the value of real-time 3D engines for pre-visualization, and argues that animation control and camera control are the two main areas that need to be addressed. Expand
PRISME: Toward a model linking tangible interaction and domain-specific tasks in mixed reality environments
TLDR
This research will be presented in two stages: a generic typology of interactors allowing to represent the majority of tangible and MR devices will be followed by an interaction model based on MASCARET’s activity description meta-model syntax, which will validate the model by simulating the standard operations performed by an airplane controller.

I'm in the game: embodied puppet interface improves avatar control
TLDR
Results suggest that the embodied mapping between a player and avatar, provided by the puppet interface, leads to important performance advantages. Expand
Engaging spect-actors with multimodal digital puppetry
TLDR
It is found that the puppetry was truly multimodal, utilizing several input modalities simultaneously; the structure of sessions followed performative strategies; and the engagement of spectators was co-constructed. Expand
Improving Interaction in HMD-Based Vehicle Simulators through Real Time Object Reconstruction
TLDR
A system to generate a real time virtual reconstruction of real world user interface elements for use in a head mounted display based driving simulator that uses sensor fusion algorithms to combine data from depth and color cameras to generate an accurate, detailed, and fast rendering of the user's hands while using the simulator. Expand
Tangible User Interfaces and Metaphors for 3D Navigation
TLDR
A new domain and task independent 3D navigation metaphor, Navigational Puppetry, is presented, which is intended to be a candidate for the navigational portion of a unifying 3D interaction metaphor. Expand
Giving your self to the game: transferring a player's own movements to avatars using tangible interfaces
TLDR
It is concluded that players - if equipped with the appropriate interfaces - can indeed project and decipher their own body movements in a game character. Expand
Massively Multiplayer Online Worlds as a Platform for Augmented Reality Experiences
TLDR
It is demonstrated that MMOs also provide a powerful platform for Augmented Reality (AR) applications, where the authors blend together locations in physical space with corresponding places in the virtual world. Expand

Puppet Show : Intuitive Puppet Interfaces for Expressive Character Control
We argue that evolving game art like virtual performances and Machinima depend on better character control. That is why Puppet Show does not focus on new or optimized gameplay but aims to extend theExpand
A Tangible Interface for High-Level Direction of Multiple Animated Characters
TLDR
This work presents a tangible interface for basic character manipulation on planar surfaces and focuses on interface aspects specific to 2D gross character animation such as path and timing specification. Expand

From the Publisher: Video games have come a long way since the first ever computer game, Spacewar, was developed at MIT in 1962 using technology developed to further man's attempts at space travel.Expand
Tangible bits: towards seamless interfaces between people, bits and atoms
TLDR
Tangible Bits allows users to "grasp & manipulate" bits in the center of users’ attention by coupling the bits with everyday physical objects and architectural surfaces and ambient media for background awareness. Expand
Emerging frameworks for tangible user interfaces
TLDR
The MCRpd interaction model for tangible interfaces is introduced, which relates the role of physical and digital representations, physical control, and underlying digital models to provide a foundation for identifying and discussing several key characteristics of tangible user interfaces. Expand
Half-Real: Video Games between Real Rules and Fictional Worlds
A video game is half-real: we play by real rules while imagining a fictional world. We win or lose the game in the real world, but we slay a dragon (for example) only in the world of the game. InExpand
First Person: New Media As Story, Performance, And Game
TLDR
The editors of First Person have gathered a remarkably diverse group of new media theorists and practitioners to consider the relationship between "story" and "game," as well as the new kinds of artistic creation that have become possible in the digital environment. Expand
A design method for “whole-hand” human-computer interaction
TLDR
This is a series of procedures that enumerates key issues and points for consideration in the development of whole-hand input that helps designers focus on task requirements, isolate problem areas, and choose appropriate whole- hand input strategies for their specified tasks. Expand
A survey of glove-based input
TLDR
This work provides a basis for understanding the field by describing key hand-tracking technologies and applications using glove-based input, and presents a cross-section of the field to date. Expand
When the interface is a talking dinosaur: learning across media with ActiMates Barney
TLDR
The theory and practice behind Barney’s performance in each mode (freestanding, with the computer, and with the television) are described, as well as how key research results shaped the interface across the different modes. Expand
