Patrick Goddi
Senior Researcher, Hewlett-Packard


Patrick Goddi is a Senior Researcher at HP Labs in Palo Alto, CA. He is currently co-opting “non-game” environments for game play and developing pervasive game technologies.

Patrick has been developing next generation mobile services platforms at HP labs since 2000, most recently working on platforms for location-based media and pervasive games as part of the mscape team. His current focus is developing network services and network game mechanics for pervasive multiplayer games that utilize a variety of sensors and player contexts.

In past projects Patrick has worked on experimental gaming interaction models and interfaces including HP’s experimental multitouch gaming table: the HP Misto Table.

Kids play and modify location-based games all the time: tag, hide & seek, king of the hill, etc. These physical games are simple, social, and integrated with the environment. This tutorial is a walkthrough of rapid game development in which a familiar game is adapted into a GPS game. With just a GPS-enabled mobile device and a little creativity, everyone can build a quick, fun location-based game. Read more.
