Play Out Loud is a no graphics, computer aided playground game for adults. It takes an outdated children’s game and gives it new life. By using computer controlled technology and motion tracking this project blurs the line between the digital and physical worlds. It attempts to take the gaming experience off of the couch and out into the real world, bringing people together without the barrier of a computer screen.
Holly Wall is currently completing her last semester in the CUNY Baccalaureate Program for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies, where she combined her interests in computer science, design and psychology and is pursuing a degree in Human-Computer Interaction. By applying principles of cognitive science and human factors to the design of computer interfaces Holly is exploring ways to enhance the user experience. Holly is also interested in video games and the potential of digital street games to get gamers out from behind their virtual avatars and out into the real world.
