Project Title: Mixed Reality Mobility Games 

Purpose of the Study:

We are playing a multi-player interactive and mixed reality game for mobility device users, and their friends and families. Your participation in the mixed reality capture the flag game will contribute to a better understanding of how mobility devices can be integrated with a mobile touchscreen for the purpose of entertainment and social play. By conducting this study, we want to discover participants’ impressions of playing a multi-player mixed reality game. We want to learn about participants’ approach in engaging with this technology in gaming while using their mobility device.
