ORLANDO, FL -- TouchMagix demonstrated its MotionMagix gesture-tracking game during November's IAAPA Attractions Expo here. The new game, which projects interactive images onto a floor or wall, allows users to interact with the projected objects in much the same way they would if playing a touchscreen game. To date, the company has some 100 games loaded into what it is calling a "virtual playground." | SEE STORY

The company also showed a new payment and redemption kiosk for MotionMagix. Measuring 14.01" D. x 14.96" W. x 23.62" H., the unit works in conjunction with the game's wall-mounted control panel and supports swipe card functions. It enables the placement of a wide range of options, depending on the size of the projected gameplay. The projected playfield can range from 72" x 48" to 144" x 108" to fit in nearly any location.

While TouchMagix's technology has been used overseas in business presentation applications, it is new to the United States and coin-op amusements. To test its appeal in these new areas, TouchMagix has conducted a series of market tests. In addition to placements in family entertainment centers across the country, the company has installed the game in some nontraditional locations such as children's hospitals, libraries, fitness centers and a dentist's office. Set on free play, the game has elicited praise from these locations for its ability to entertain children with its intuitive play, the company reported.
