    CoGAME: Manipulation Using a Handheld Projector


Entry Number: 04



    An example of an application enhanced by the ”manipulation-by- projection” technique, this cooperative game allows players to visually and intuitively control a robot with projectors. Players interchangeably move and connect their projected images to create a path that leads the robot to its goal.
