Swan Boat

Swan Boat is a social multiplayer exergame to enhance treadmill running experiences. It targets the tedious nature of running on a treadmill, by making the experience fun through collaborative social interaction and immersive game play. I have designed and implemented the game and supporting platform, including hardware and software.
