3. The Right Equipment

Nintendo to create skipping and clapping game using library archives
Three English universities have teamed up with the British Library and gaming giant Nintendo to develop the prototype games, which will be similar to Wii Sports. Researchers will use recordings of playground games and songs held in archives at the British Library, as well as collect current examples direct from today's school playgrounds. These will be used to create prototype games that can be played on a games console. The researchers will also create an interactive website for the Library, so that the archives can be accessed by children, parents and members of the public. Children from the two participating schools will help develop the prototype games, and design the website. Project leader Dr Andrew Burn, from the Institute of Education, +44 (0)2079074654 said: "We will 'record' movements from particular playground games and incorporate these into playable computer games, ideally with songs and words." He added: "Gaming platforms such as the Wii are designed for physical play and are therefore ideal for producing games involving movement." The three universities involved are London, Sheffield and east London. Nintendo is offering advice, but has no commercial involvement in the project.
