A University of Michigan research team has created an augmented reality system that allows people with different levels of mobility to play and exercise together.

The research prototype of iGYM projects a court onto the floor and can host several games, including one that is a hybrid of soccer and air hockey.

Players are surrounded by a circle that can be expanded to strike virtual targets, such as a ball player can guide into their opponent's goal.

Professor Roland Graf and his team are looking for partners to bring iGym to the market.รก
