Eidola: An Interactive Augmented Reality Audio-Game Prototype
Augmented reality audio represents a new trend in digital technology that enriches the real acoustic environment with synthesized sound produced by virtual sound objects. On the other hand, an audio-game is based only on audible feedback rather than on visual. In this work, an audio-game prototype is presented which takes advantage of the characteristics of augmented reality audio for realizing more complex audio-game scenarios. The prototype was realized as an audiovisual interactive installation, allowing the further involvement of the physical game space as the secondary component for constructing the game ambient environment. A sequence of tests has shown that the proposed prototype can efficiently support complex game scenarios provided that the necessary advanced interaction paths are available.
