Toward A Reality-Based Interaction Gaming Experience for Older Adults
Jessi Stark, Anthony Tang, and Ehud Sharlin. (2018). Toward A Reality-Based Interaction Gaming Experience for Older Adults. In Designing Interactions for the Ageing Populations - Workshop at CHI 2018.
Serious games on mobile and desktop devices often target older adults for the development and maintenance of cognitive skills; however, there is little evidence that these games are effective at transferring those skills to real life . We are interested in using reality-based interaction to investigate whether tangible user interfaces and augmented reality can improve the transferability of divided attention skills from electronic devices to real life while also providing opportunities for engaging entertainment. We plan to design an interface for older adults who wish to play cognitive development games that are both dynamic and physical.
