Lansdown Lecture - Heartlands: heart-rate, GPS, gameplay

What is happening to media? -- the implications of an award-winning world-first pervasive game. A unique game/artwork that uses live heart-rate and GPS to build each player’s personal game experience.

Media are changing, becoming pervasive and physical instead of being confined to conventional screens like TV, cinema and PCs. Rachel Jacobs and her colleagues at Active Ingredient, a Nottingham based new media company, have developed a world-first pervasive game which recently won the first Nokia Ubimedia international award in conjunction with the Mixed Reality Lab at Nottingham University. The work originated in a Wellcome Trust-funded project while Rachel was a postgraduate in the Lansdown Centre and has received world-wide attention. The Centre welcomes her back to Middlesex to reflect on the project and draw out issues for the future.
