Sound-Controlled Intergalactic Teddy

At Støj we made Sound Controlled Intergalactic Teddy. It is an infinite runner game where you use your voice and sounds to control Teddy’s movements. If you need to jump over a green slimy alien you say “Ohhh” and to duck you simply clap your hands.

Using machine learning we have taught the game to understand and differentiate the sounds. For the game to be able to recognise and distinguish the sounds, we trained it by recording a lot of diverse “ohhh”s and claps which made it robust and easy for anyone to play.

Both the game and the machine learning engine is built with javascript. The installation was displayed in Namur, Belgium at KIKK Festival 2017 as a part of Little.KIKK.
