🏆 Won Runner up for best implementation! [UIST 2016 Student Innovation Contest]
This is a game of Ping Pong with a fun twist. Players wear a brace on their arms which is equipped with Electromuscle Stimulation Pads. Using an Android phone, opponents can throw special attacks at strategic times.

I experimented with a number of ideas but settled on demoing only two 'special attacks`.
- Magnet makes the arm move towards the chest, the user perceives the paddle to be sticking to their chest.
- Shaky Hands makes the user’s wrists vibrate at around 3Hz, making swings slightly inaccurate.
