Abstract: This paper presents a concept of using an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) commonly known as a ‘drone’ as a means to deliver and facilitate game play. Our idea is to project a playing area and follow users in the game with a support of drone. This introduces novel abilities (i) to move the gaming platform to the desired location and (ii) to free users from carrying the gaming equipment. Consequently this intigates novel possibilities to explore and study new exergame paradigms and users’ attitudes towards the system as a whole. The concept has also a potential to provide a breakthrough in social acceptance of drones in gaming scenarios whilst contributing to current debates on the legislation governing drone flights and furthering knowledge in human-drone interaction.
