In my last post, I talked about developing a Maths game which allowed you to record and use your own gestures for playing the game. The example I gave was that you could flap your arms around to select the addition answer. You could do the “night fever” motion to say that you want to select the subtraction symbol.
The idea of the game is that the “Operator” is hidden and the student must guess what it is by doing their chosen movement for that symbol.
I have managed to do some playing around with the recording of gestures and the overall early stages of the interface. The program currently lets you calibrate the game so that you can chose the movement when you load it. At the beginning of the game you will be able to select the drop box for the addition, subtraction, division or multiplication. You can then record the movement. Once you have recorded all of them you can then go and test them.
I have also included some childish / cartoon like numbers so that this may be used with lower ages. I have included a photo below of the product as it stands so that you can see how it is developing. I will keep you updated over the weeks and will issue the source code on here and the Partners in Learning Network.
