scope: augmented reality game

scope is an augmented reality game designed by frantz lasorne that uses computer enhanced lasses to combine virtual gaming with physical objects. the game works by using small game pieces that are mounted with small digital codes that let the computer know what they are and where they are located. each player in the game puts on a headset that is linked to a computer. the players interact with the computer telling it what to do. as weapons are fired or players are moved, the action is superimposed of the physical objects bring them to life. the game can use almost any toy, mixing medieval knights with toy soldiers and perhaps even a barbie or lego man. with this kind of augmented reality games, kids and even adults can bring their playful imagination to life.

    Nobody NEEDS any form of entertainment. Video games are entirely auxiliary to human needs, but we play them and enjoy them because it’s stimulates our brains on a very simple subconscious level.

    Sure this system looks clunky and incredibly low-fi, but all gaming platforms have to start somewhere.

    This system is one more step into what will, undoubtedly, be the most significant form of entertainment of the 21st Century.

    As I mentioned before, this system is in its infancy. 50 years from now, everything we ‘see’ and ‘touch’ could be augmented, projecting a different form of ‘reality’ that we would otherwise expect.

    The applications are endless – video games, shopping, sex industry, films, music…I could go on.
