Higgins Armory Museum
This project presents a sport of the past using current technologies to recreate the experience of jousting for visitors to the Higgins Armory Museum. Through collaboration with museum staff, intensive historical research, and a rigorous, iterative software development cycle, the project team developed a jousting simulation using technologies that incorporated Java, Flash, TCP/IP sockets, Bluetooth and XML. Nintendo Wii remotes, embedded in a lance stub and to horse reins, were also used to further simulate realism in the user-application interface.
