Summary The There Is No Ball system is a web and mobile-based game system, which allows users to play a game of paddleboard without an actual physical ball. The system is composed of two tablets, which communicate to exchange sensor information and simulate the hitting of an imaginary ball back and forth between the two devices. A third device displays the calculated location of the ball and projects its moving image to the screen. This paper presents the implementation challenges and solutions for coordinating three devices, which use heterogeneous communication protocols to exchange and maneuver various sensor data. Local filtering strategies are applied to improve the responsiveness of actuation and to deliver an enjoyable game experience.
