Volcano Fever is a handheld augmented reality game designed to teach proper condom use in a playful way. The game was inspired by a desire to leverage vision-based AR to create an fun game that uses the condom package itself as the physical prop to which the game is attached.
The team that created the game is:
Anna Mansour, MS HCI
Mae Tidman, Computational Media
Jia Zhang, MS CS
Tarick Khalaf, Computational Media
Jason Lee, MS Digital Media
Here’s a video of the project:
