Multimediageräte für multimodale soziale Benutzerschnittstellen

The Dr.-Herbert-Brause-Stiftung funded the HCI group with 30.000 € dedicated to a multitouch table and a social robot. With it, the storytelling demonstrator XROADS ( can be extended by a robotic storyteller to a novel interactive emotional experience. The Robot Game Master takes on the role of different characters, which the human players meet during the adventure, as well as of the narrator. The demonstration presents a novel software and hardware platform that allows the robot to (1) proactively lead through the storyline and to (2) react to changes in the ongoing game in real-time, while (3) fostering players’ collaborations.
