Using games, researchers can better understand how preteen girls recognize and react to human trafficking while educating on how to safely respond. We seek to develop a sensor-enabled “choose your own adventure” game about a group of young girls that spend time after school as dog walkers.

Devices that capture hand and eye movement will be demonstrated in brief tutorials and available for use as input devices. Prizes will be awarded to teams that demonstrate the most effective use of motion controls, the most creative use of motion controls and the best game using motion controls.

At the Power of NeuroGaming (PoNG) Center at the Qualcomm Institute, UC San Diego, we are building a learning ecosystem around video games and sensor technology. By combining cognitive science, neuroscience, engineering, the digital arts, and education we seek to create games that meet a wide range of goals including medical rehabilitation, behavioral intervention, learning across the lifespan, and encouraging social change.

The Power of NeuroGaming Center provides people with greater insight into their own patterns of behavior through sensor-enabled games. We integrate neuroscience knowledge in the areas of motivation, learning, movement, and physiology with current and cutting edge sensor technology. We envision pervasive use of sensor-enabled games that respond to a wide range players' activities, including those not readily observable, such as electroencephalography (EEG) and heart rate.
