Refining Concept Scope

With my concept, I shall explore external tangible I/O.
Whilst researching ideas, I came across some interesting applications.
( I also found that I was appealed too by games with circular aesthetics. This could potentially be due to the novelty of such aesthetics. )
A (really fun) strategy game where your only control is sending swarms of ships across planets to take over a galaxy.
“An ambient game of space exploration and conquest that employs … plant growth and biomechanical evolution.” It’s minimalistic aesthetics are reminiscent of children’s books like “the little prince”.
Okami is an interesting game on the wii, you can utilize the wii remote to paint attacks. Similarly most Wii and Kinect games are interesting in regards to utilizing human (gestural) controls, a toolset beyond the traditional controller.
Harry Potter Spells iPhone App.
Quite a fun game, especially with multiplayer. Spells can be cast by players through gestural input (i.e. waving their phones around with certain motions).
It is also interesting that iOS games such as FIFA 12 can be controlled on an iPhone or iPad whilst a display is outputted to a tv.
