Gaming with simultaneous, multi-person touch

Game developers are continuing to experiment with interfaces which allow two or more people to interact with the same device at the same time. This video above is from Firstborn‘s Doflball game (named after the product’s senior designer Dofl Yun) for iPad.

Large, multi-touch displays are enabling these kind of interactions and challenging one of the fundamental principles of current mobile interface design: that devices are typically used by one person at any one time.

This topic will be explored in more detail at our next MEX in London on 30 Nov – 01 Dec, where it is Pathway #3 ‘Develop interface designs for multi-person, simultaneous use of touchscreens‘.
