Infinitity Breakout is a prototype that illustrates best practices on an large interactive display in public spaces. Players play a easily join-able, easily leave-able breakout game with their own personal devices.
Infinity Breakout demonstrates a system which uses a large public display as well as players personal phones with a walk-up-and-use philosophy. Players scan a QR code, which connects there phone to the display (no need to download an app). Players can then control a paddle in the game which bounces a ball to break bricks in a version of the classic arcade game. This game was created as a proof of concept for a poster publication about public use of large displays where personal devices, like phones, play a role in the interaction.
