Pirates!
Chair's Prerogative Exhibit

A mobile, multi-user, context-aware computer game that runs on PDAs in a wireless network and is experienced in physical space. The game uses mobile terminals to take advantage of, and rely upon, players' mobility as an intrinsic part of the game. Unlike most computer games, the experience depends just as much on social interaction with people in the real world as on the computer-mediated game elements.

Technical Innovation

  • Location sensitive, multi-user collaborative wireless game
