    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    In this paper, we describe the development of social playware for the Moto Tiles. We exemplify the development of social playware with the design of a number of social games that people can play together on one set of Moto Tiles. The design envisions play that mediates coordination among participants, play that is physically challenging, play that is cognitive challenging, play that is changed with the different layouts of the tiles, play that is enriched by different sensor modalities, etc. In all cases, the game and interaction design is guided by the Playware ABC concept of creating these social play opportunities for Anybody, Anywhere, Anytime, by Building Bodies and Brains, and thereby facilitating that therapists and care workers can easily Construct, Combine, and Create new social play interactions to fit their particular users.
