The Recycling Game is a fun and interactive Floor Projection System game teaching players about recyclable materials and how they can be identified. Using a real broom, players need to sort different types of virtual waste items into the correct waste containers in the corners of the projected image. Voice over instructions support the animated graphics of the game.
“Think you’re a recycling pro? Sweep as many recycling items into their correct bins as you can before the hooter sounds. Ready?“
This how the player is prompted to start the game and to sort the litter into the correct receptacles. Players have 30 seconds to move as many litter items into the correct bins as they can.
Depending on the score achieved by the player, feedback messages are voiced, celebrating the success of the player or giving encouragement to play again.
After each game cycle players and onlookers are presented with short alternating ‘Did you know?’ information snippets with images and voiceover..
The interactive floor projection system consists of an infrared camera, a pc and a data projector fitted into a compact housing that is simply mounted underneath the ceiling of your venue. Tracking the movement of visitors passing over a defined floor area, the software directs projected images and sound accordingly. Since there is no physical contact between player and technology, the exhibit is very low on maintenance. .
