Coptr is a set of add-ons for remote-controlled helicopters. Firstly, it features an interface where your real-life copter can act as a sprite in a projected game, interacting with the game in real-time as you fly around the screen. The second add-on features pedals that can control the up-and-down motion of your helicopter, providing fun, responsive flight control. Our gaming interface could easily be extended to control a wide variety of new or pre-existing games— our software is easily adaptable. We imagine our pedal-control software could be used as an exercise game, or even to interact with our gaming interface, for an interactive experience.
