Abstract

Despite the popularity of Augmented and Virtual Reality within gaming, the full potential of such technologies is yet to be fully taken advantage of. Thus, we introduce WAR Bots, a cyber-physical game which intends to investigate the use of both Augmented and Virtual Reality within a coherent gaming experience. We present the underlying architecture to realize our approach, and accordingly, implemented our proposed method in a multiplayer game. Finally, we present the future direction of our approach.
