A game in which people can throw themselves at a life-sized image of an opponent who could be on the other side of the world is being prototyped.
Remote Impact will be among the exhibits at e-Day, an online communication event on Skye for Highlands and Islands communities (in the UK.)
The interactive fighting game is being developed by Moray-based Distance Lab.
In the prototype, people battle a silhouette projected on to a mattress and can register brute force.
Distance Lab in Forres said the game is different from technologies such as Nintendo Wii and console games because it does not involve a hand-held device.
A life-sized "shadow" of the opposing gamers is projected on the interface, which resembles a mattress stood up against a wall.
The participant's movement and the strength of blows are measured by a sensing system.
