When we started visualizing joint angles using the kinect in the biomechanics class, it got me thinking about building more games and visualizing tools for rehab/physical therapy. For my midterm, I developed a tiny game that lets you kill monsters with your right hand and your right knee. Here’s a rough demo that as a presented as my midterm..
I’d like to take this project further by using systems/creatures/forces taught in nature of code and some physical therapy programs to design games that take away the boredom of rehab exercise program.
You might not want to want to flex and extend that knee 20 times a day, but for killing monsters.. yeah!
