We present RealDance, a prototype video game for exploring spatial 3D interaction for dance-based gaming and instruction. Our interface uses four Nintendo Wii remotes and is independent of buttons, floor position, cameras, or sensor bars so the user is untethered, allowing for natural, full-body motion. Our range of detectable movements includes stationary poses, punches, kicks, claps and stomps, which are scored in the context of the dance routine. We describe our initial experiments in interface design, gesture evaluation and scoring, and user experience, which reveals interesting new areas for 3D spatial interaction research related to creating an dasiaidealpsila dance game.
