We are Team ProtoChamp, a cross-disciplinary team of students from Carnegie Mellon University studying at the Entertainment Technology Center. We are on a discovery project for “exergaming”, which is about combining traditional exercise experience with gaming technology.
For this project we will start by taking a traditional exercise bike platform and explore new media experiences geared towards gamers. To do this, we will purchase or create a custom hardware solution to obtain bike speed, resistance, directionality, and more. This project will focus primarily on iterative content creation and designing engaging paradigms for exergaming.
