iPad Games and Books with Physical Playing Pieces!

09/21/12  |  Posted by Maria Rouzzo  |  Posted in Digital Creativity

Les éditions Volumiques Les éditions volumiques is a publishing house focusing on the paper book as a new computer platform, as well as a research lab on book, (computational) paper, reading, games and toys and their relation to new technologies. They believe that the interactive, video games in particular, led to a new conception of the narrative and the role of the reader raising the questions of how to introduce the uses and user experience of digital media in the paper book in order to update, expand its scope and engage the reader in a new way. By combining physical cards, game pieces, and other objects for purchase with free iPad applications, Les éditions volumiques allows users to experience a whole new level of game play and exploration by utilizing the celebrated digital/physical interaction the iPad is renowned for. By integrating real-world objects with interactive applications in the digital world, these books and games are as visually stimulating as they are just plain fun! Volumique Online Store Volumique on iTunes zAPPed: Hasbro Games RevampedHasbro and Volumique have joined forces to create an entirely new gaming experience. Sensory game pieces interact with the iPad in that the screen can detect which card or token should be activated given it's position on the screen while the application is running.

Books and iPads:

  • Balloon Paper: " With this paper video game you get both a regular book and a pop-up paper hot air balloon to lay on top of your iPad screen. You are the hot air balloon pilot, and you will discover an ever changing world as you fly with the wind. With your fingers, you can control the wind's direction to have your Balloon lift up or go down, to land on the ground, fly through the clouds, hit tags on the ground and pass close to birds and other characters. Two types of Gameplay are possible:In the classical Game, you pilot a virtual hot air balloon with your fingers. In another game version, you lay the hot air balloon pop-up on top of your iPad screen, and will be able to see your balloon magically take off and drift gracefully over the land." For more information, please visit balloon.paper-app.com

  • Daniel Johnston's Space Ducks: "Space Ducks: an Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness is Daniel's first ever comic book, brought to life. Play your way through the story, watching animated films and unlocking Daniel's newest album along the way-all created in collaboration with some of today's top indie musicians. For next-level action, collect game pieces in the hardcover of the comic book, and then place them on your iPad to blow your duck mind." For more information, visit spaceducks.com

Further Explorations:

  • Rorschach Cards: "Prototype of a card game with recognition system between paper and iPad." Magnets placed inside different locations of playing cards create a variety of inkblot designs on the iPad's screen. This experimental application was inspired by the Rorschach inkblot test. More iPad playing card recognition.

  • Towers: "Towers uses a series of architectural paper shapes placed on an iPad. Though all of the tower's windows, one can view a fascinating shadow theatre."
