John Gregory

Capstone Project: Magic Sensor Game

John Gregory was studying Game Development and Entrepreneurship at UOIT. He is interested in programming and game design using the Unity game engine. As a summer research assistant, John was working on the biometric storyboard software. He designed a cross-platform biometric storyboard tool that is able to process input from designers, users, and game user researchers to create biometric storyboards. The tool allows the combination of self-report data with physiological data, such as electrodermal response and electromyography. John was also working on the next indie hit game codenamed “Matter of Seconds”, developed entirely in Unity. His focus was to create a simple and easy-to-use biometric storyboard tool and Unity games to provide a better understanding of the user data that has been gathered.
