Virtual Connection

For centuries the rope has been a symbol of community, friendship, and interpersonal communication. Inspired by the icon, the designers of Rope Revolution, a rope-based gaming system, identified popular rope games from around the world, incorporating them into a tangible rope interface where the focus is collaborative play. A compact motion-sensing and force-feedback module allows users to jump rope, fly a kite, ride a horse and a number of physical activities that connect players across virtual spaces.

Designers: Lining Yao, Sayamindu Dasgupta, Nadia Cheng, Jason Spingarn-Koff, Ostap Rudakevych, & Hiroshi Ishii
