Video Game Installation Combines Physical And Digital Play [Video]
RoRoD is a version of the classic brick-eliminating Breakout game that requires players to bounce a real ball against a digital display.
Revenge of Revenge of Doh (RoRoD) is an interactive installation by Jorge Nuno Coutinho based on the classic brick-eliminating Breakout game. In this version, players compete against the computer on each level to see who can destroy the largest amount of bricks, bouncing a real ball against a projected screen to knock off the bricks.
The installation combines physical and digital play, as the computer uses the classic method of bouncing a ball with a paddle, while people use the more natural method of throwing a physical ball. The project was exhibited during the 9th edition of the Black & White film festival. You can check it out in the video below:
