In the second week of our "Experience Prototyping" course, we created a small game for three players in Processing. We connected three Playstation Move controllers via Bluetooth to a computer and used an Application called "Kaliber" to read out serial values from them.

By gradually pressing the trigger-button of one Move-controller the players control the color values red, green and blue. Every player is represented by one of the outer triangles on the screen. The goal is to match the color of the inner triangle by "mixing" the right amount of red green and blue. As all of the triangles change to the currently mixed color, the first challenge for the players is to figure out which of the triangles is which player. When a player matches the right amount of red, green or blue (he knows which color he controls, by the color the Move-controller shows) her controller will start to vibrate more, the closer she gets and "her" triangle will start moving towards the inner triangle.

The goal of the game is that all players reach the middle triangle and hold the position for a couple of seconds.
