Bubble Popper is an exertion game that combines the magic of popping bubbles in a merged physical-virtual space: players pop virtual bubbles appearing in the physical environment. Players can enjoy the tranquility of popping bubbles, similar to a bubble-wrap popping experience, or they can engage in competitive behaviour, trying to pop more bubbles than their play partner.
Bubble Popper is realized with a Wiimote that tracks infrared light that is triggered by a custom-made glove participants wear to pop the bubbles.
