A platform game with real platforms.

Experimental gaming these days is all about playing with reality. From 
virtual reality and alternate reality to augmented reality, more and 
more people are trying to merge video games and real life in interesting 
ways. Sebastien Schmieg's art project/game Roy Block adds another term 
to this growing list: mixed reality.

Roy Block uses real life, handheld wooden building blocks as the 
platforms for an on-screen avatar. A hidden camera detects the blocks as 
they're pressed against the tracing paper projection screen, translating 
their position and alignment to in-game data.
