Game Installation

Headbang Hero is a music/dance videogame for testing and improving your headbanging prowess.

You are awarded points for your personal headbanging choreography… but you should be aware that your health is at risk! To stress this point Headbang Hero also analyses how hazardous your performance is. Using a wireless motion-sensing wig as game interface, anyone – regardless of how much hair they have – can become a Headbang Hero!

The current prototype version was put together using the Processing environment (and the Minim sound library) for the software and the Arduino platform for hardware.
