Abstract

In this demonstration, we introduce SPLASH ( Seek, PLAy, SHare), a mobile application which blends gaming with content sharing and socializing activities. SPLASH is a human computation game that generates location-based content as a byproduct of gameplay. The entertainment derived from gameplay is harnessed to motivate users to contribute content. A detailed description of the features in SPLASH and its distinctive characteristics will also be presented.
