1 + S Team Leader: Mari Tomizawa and Aditya Vinnakota Members: Corinna Crayton, Martin Fisher, Deyu Kong, Christopher Martinez, Jordyn Mccord, Richard McMahon, Nick Sherck, Adi Vinnakota V AT HEC

2 + Our Project Partner St. Vincent Pediatric Rehabilitation Center In Indianapolis, Indiana Working with physical therapists Patients are children ages 3-14 years old struggling with motor and visual skills 2

3 + Project Goal Develop a method of testing, recording, and quantifying a patient’s hand eye coordination skills Quantified data will be used by physical therapists to track patients’ improvement with therapies Needs to be done without patients feeling like they are being tested, but gives an incentive for them to try to do their best 3

4 + Current Design A system of fun games which challenge a child’s hand eye coordination skills Child does not know data is being recorded Data is quantified and easy to understand 4

5 + How the game runs: “Flyswat” game 1. Child sees a moving fly 2. The fly lands on a colored spot 3. Child hits the drum with the corresponding color 4. The time it takes for the child to respond and hit the drum is quantified as a measure of their Hand-Eye Coordination ability 5

6 + Project History HEC project began in Fall 2010 Games have been developed in past semesters The Rockband drum hardware was selected early on Data is currently recorded manually 6

7 + Current Project Status Therapists want new games to be developed Old games need improvements/debugging Rockband drum kit has serious hardware sensitivity problems that need to be fixed Digital database needs to be designed and created 7

8 + Games Team Designing/Improving games Database Team Designing and building the database Hardware Team Fixing issues with the Rockband drums HEC Team 3 members per team 8

9 + HEC – Games Team Martin Fisher Deyu Kong Jordyn McCord 9

10 + Fly Swat Last semester improved “predictability” of Fly Swat game Our first task: Delivery Compatibility issues Created offline file Currently waiting on client feedback 10

11 + Seven Areas of Hand Eye Coordination 1. Visual-Spatial Relations: uses sight to discriminate differences 2. Visual Memory 3. Visual Discrimination 4. Visual Figure Ground 5. Visual-Form Constancy 6. Visual Sequential Memory 7. Visual Closure 11

12 + Developing A New Game The client wants a game to test the child’s visual memory Similar to the Fly Swat game: Same drum kit Similar layout 12

13 + What is Visual Memory? The ability to store and retrieve previously experienced visual sensations and perceptions when the stimuli that originally evoked them are no longer present. 13

14 + For example… Recall picture details Complete the picture Recall and sequence a series previously shown 14

15 + Our Game Plan Similar background that lights up colors in sequence 15

19 + Testing and Scoring Score total run percentage Record response time Cymbals/No Cymbals Spatial recognition 2-7 Sequences Unlimited Runs 19

20 + Timeline Week 7/8: Present prototype to Venetia Gather feedback Week 8/9: Begin writing game code 20

21 + Questions Are there any suggestions for the criteria involved in the new game? Is there anything you would like to ask us? Current Criteria: Unlimited runs 2-7 sequences Cymbals/no cymbals Score percentage of total runs Record response time 21

22 + HEC Hardware Team Mari Tomizawa Corinna Crayton Richard McMahon 22

23 + The Rockband Drum kit 23

24 + Current Use of drums Child hits the drums, response is digitally recorded Corresponds with the Flash Game Connects wirelessly to therapist’s computer 24

25 + Successful Ergonomics Children can easily figure out how to use the drum kit Therapist does not need to explain much Children love the drum kit design 25

26 + Sensitivity Issues Sensitivity Pads have worn out Inconsistent data recording Only certain areas on pad work This is very inconvenient for therapists and patients 26

27 + Redesigning the Drum kit Determined the sensitivity problem unfixable without major altering However, want to keep drum kit layout Ergonomics are too valuable to loose 27

28 + Solution 1 Replace sensor with a switch Place arcade buttons under pads instead of a sensitivity pad Drum shape maintained Issues: size of buttons 28

29 + Solution 2 Replace current sensitivity pad with professional Piezo transducer Has a very long lifespan Issues: Expensive 29

30 + Plan for the semester 1. Research solutions to sensitivity issues 2. Choose and implement a solution 3. Deliver fixed product to client Even if permanent solution is not made this semester, we need to have at least a temporary working drum kit delivered 30

31 + Questions? Comments? Suggestions? 31
