PIxL @ CHI PLAY 2015

The PIxL Lab presented five works-in-progress posters at CHI PLAY 2015 in London:

Collaborative Planning Gameplay from Disaster Response Practice

Imperfect Robot Control in a Mixed Reality Game to Teach Hybrid Human-Robot Team Coordination

Featured

The PIxL Lab works at the intersection of games, human-computer interaction, and mixed reality, developing game experiences that educate and function as scientific experiments in HCI. Beyond development workstations, it includes a custom wearable computing platform that connects sensors, a head-mounted display, and a hand-held display to enable players to enjoy mixed reality experiences away from the desktop.
