Abstract

This paper presents a novel method for interactive playground design, based on traditional children’s play. This method combines the rich interaction possibilities of computer games with the physical and open-ended aspects of traditional children’s games. The method is explored by the development of a prototype interactive playground, which has been implemented and evaluated over two iterations.
