Physical interactive games

The obtrusive ball is an interactie platform , consisting of ball that can sense movement.  This system works without external controls.  The end goal is to create a ball that is capable of playing different kinds of interactive games in real life (like tag, for instance).  The project has come to a stop at prototype number 5, due to lack of further funding.  It may resurface when sufficient funds are found.

Please take a look at the pictures and movies documenting the proces and have a look at the short item the Belgian press dedicated to it.

This project was not possible without the help of Villanella,  Ramon Jongen, Sven Schörgers, Mathijs van der Kroft from BETA at ZUYD university
