* Across the industry, "dwell times for highly engaging exhibits often last only 3–4 min" (source)
** Our games are made primarily for adults but they appeal equally across the age range; children as young as six play our games with great determination, sometimes for up to 90 minutes,
building endurance, focus, coordination and spatial awareness
Kinetronix is the world's first inverse augmented reality gameplay station.
It is played single or in pairs, as if on a computer, except the players are "inside" the game and they play with their whole body, surrounded by spectators, and completely touch-free.
Kinetronix scans players with a 3D camera and “teleports” them inside the computer like in the movies The Matrix™ and TRON™. They see their real-world selves inside the 3D computer world and they explore and move around using just their body.
The highly sensitive virtual controls allow the players to solve puzzles and race and battle each other, on the big screen, with physical movement alone, in front of the live audience.
... the bigger the screen, the bigger the audience!
Augmented Reality is when you hold a phone and game images are added to your camera view.
Fast paced action combined with playing against a live opponent makes Kinetronix game experiences always fresh — even during matches that last a long time.
(All our games are Inverse Augmented Reality, whether they are intense or lighthearted!)

Our value proposition:
Our games are family friendly and designed to promote physical and emotional well being while improving focus and coordination.
Speed of Light
Players are teleported into an electronic arena where they challenge each other much like the light bikes game from the epic 1980's movie TRON™. Bursting across the grid at a breakneck pace, competitors leave thunderous trails of light while making split-second manoeuvers to avoid their rivals.
(Forgive our stay-at-home recording, a video from a venue will be uploaded when we are all ready.)
Speed of Light is a set of three visually similar but gameplay-wise very different games: Race, Obstacles, and Battle (above).
In Speed of Light: RACE two players race breathlessly across race tracks of various difficulties, physically standing not far from each other but with their minds transported to the race grid across which their scanned bodies rush.
The touch-free controls are highly sensitive and precise. You can see they allow for extremely fast response times in this unedited solo racing gameplay video:
The game guides novice players to make sure they have a good experience. Click on the image to watch a video of a couple playing the game for the first time.
A separate high intensity Obstacle Course mode prepares the players for combat. It can be played by a single player or two players training independently at the same time, until they are ready for duel in the third and final game.
Simple or very difficult 3D race tracks can be developed by anyone using simple image editors like Windows Paint.
To add branding to the game, simply drop one or more logos as plain .jpg
or .png files into a folder and the game will turn them into holograms
displayed at the points that matter for the player the most --
checkpoints in the track marking the end of a segment.

“Inverse Augmented Reality is taking what is real and surrounding it with what is imaginary.
Vizikord places your real live image inside the computer generated
world, where you do things with your whole body — solve puzzles, dance
and make kaleidoscopic images to the beat and even make music. This
allows you to use the screen, which normally takes the mind away from
the body, to bring the experience back into the body — but now augmented
with creative super powers!”
