Attraktion!GmbH to Showcase PLAYOKE Dance at IAAPA Asian Attractions Expo


Vienna, Austria — Markus Beyr and his company Attraktion! GmbH will showcase their latest product, called “PLAYOKE Dance,” at IAAPA’s Asian Attractions Expo (AAE) in Singapore on 5th-7th June 2013. PLAYOKE Dance is said to be the first interactive dance game using motion tracking that is designed specifically for out-of-home commercial use. Attraktion! will introduce PLAYOKE Dance at AAE (exhibit booth #1626) to show its applicability to theme parks, family entertainment centers, science centers and other leisure facilities.

“Hitherto, virtual games based on motion tracking have been playable only at home,” says Markus Beyr, who has been involved in the creation of some 200 media-based attractions around the world. “Since the emergence of PLAYOKE Dance, this motion tracking interface can be applied to large groups of participants, in a commercial leisure setting. PLAYOKE Dance is a tech-enhanced group experience and an entertaining game due to its real-time features, and is scalable and flexible in respect of size and content.”
