BODY DRAW! PEN

Reflective Statement

We were challenged to think about a new scenario in which people could collaborate over the screen telepresently. We brainstormed various collaborative activities and we thought drawing but with a small catch will add a thrilling component of silliness and also a moment of reveal when everyone sees their silly drawings.

While we don't have all the technical parameters sorted out, we sketched and prototyped a rough patch in Isadora that uses Chroma Tracking and a Live draw feature.

Supporting Research

We brainstormed some collaborative activities that could take place telepresently. We thought about drawing, composing a song, or some form of charades.

In our research while drawing games have always existed online. There's not a widespread game in which you could link two screens to draw and collaborate together simultaneously. In the end we decided on a simple game which link to screens so that people could draw together and against each other in a game where they cannot use their hands but they are drawing with other body parts like an eye, a nose or their chin.
