Deploying body-area inertial sensor networks on human bodies to capture motions has attracted a lot of interests recently, especially in cyber-physical video games and context-aware applications. While video games on the cyber world have been quite popular, enhancing them with more physical inputs, such as those from inertial sensors, is becoming a new trend. Following this trend, we develop a video game integrated with body-area inertial sensor networks deployed on players as inputs and with multiple game screens to broaden players' views and provide more realistic interaction experiences. Our design simulates a multi-screen game engine by controlling a set of game engines simultaneously. A prototype with a body-area inertial sensor network platform, a cyber-physical game controller, and a set of game engines is demonstrated. The demonstrated game also addresses the interaction between virtual objects and players.
