Vegame: Exploring Art and History in Venice Game Architecture

  title={Vegame: Exploring Art and History in Venice Game Architecture},
  author={Francesco and Bellotti and Riccardo and Berta and Alessandro and De Gloria and Edmondo and Ferretti and Massimiliano and Margarone}
M obile computing technologies can support users in performing the activities of daily life 1 and enhance their interaction with the surrounding environment. But evaluating ubiquitous computing systems and their impact on a target population is difficult and costly because it requires analyzing real users—using a fully operational, reliable , and robust tool—in a real context. 2 Our pro-ject's aim was thus to develop a mobile game and test its effectiveness in a real-world setting, at… 

Figures and Tables from this paper


Supporting Efficient Design of Mobile HCI
The paper describes MADE and briefly sketches some tour guide applications developed using the tool, including M3P, a network-enabled multimedia player easily programmable through the Micromultimedia Services Language (MSL).
Charting past, present, and future research in ubiquitous computing
Everyday computing is proposed, a new area of applications research, focussed on scaling interaction with respect to time, just as pushing the availiability of computing away from the traditional desktop fundamentally changes the relationship between humans and computers.
The Conversational Role of Electronic Guidebooks
Because the visitors integrated the electronic guidebooks in their existing conversations with their companions, they achieved social interactions with each other that were more fulfilling than those that occur with other presentation methods such as traditional headphone audio tours.
Will Wireless Gaming Be a Winner?
Boosting this effort is the advent in mobile devices of faster processors, color screens, better sound, and improved input-command features, all of which have elevated mobile gaming to near-console quality.
Constructivism And The Technology Of Instruction A Conversation
Thank you very much for downloading constructivism and the technology of instruction a conversation and for looking hundreds of times for their chosen readings, but end up in infectious downloads.

Exploring the story of computing has value, for an educated populace is far more able to reconcile its past, reason about its present, and be intentional about its future.
Location Systems for Ubiquitous Computing
This survey and taxonomy of location systems for mobile-computing applications describes a spectrum of current products and explores the latest in the field to help developers of location-aware applications better evaluate their options when choosing a location-sensing system.
