Preservation and Gamification of Traditional Sports.


This chapter reviews an example of preservation and gamification sce-nario applied to traditional sports. In the first section we describe a preservation technique to capture intangible content. It includes character modelling, motion recording and animation processing. The second section is focused on the gamifi-cation aspect. It describes an interactive scenario integrated in a platform that in-cludes a multi-modal capturing system, a motion comparison and analysis as well as a semantic based feedback system.
