Another interesting ubiquitous game, developed by the Intel research lab in Berkeley which is trying to look at the urban tissue with new tools. Here a game is the opportunity for the players to experiment with the space of their city in a different way.
Digital Street Game is a reinterpretation of traditional street games that uses hybrid digital-physical play to spur exploration of players’ relationships to the city and its inhabitants. The game provides an open-ended platform for research while encouraging creative expression and collaborative play. As part of the game, players generate documentation and commentary that traces their paths through the game – and the city. Different views of these traces create a prismatic portrait of urban places as mediated through technology use and social relationships. The game becomes a methodological experiment in producing a rich environment for community engagement and social research.
