The Light Cove is an interactive installation that uses augmented reality to encourage human interaction. It is used in a social entertainment setting such as a club or lounge. Upon entering the space, each person is paired with a sprite which follows them. Social actions such talking to friends, meeting a stranger and dancing are rewarded by the evolution of the sprite, which gains characteristics of the other persons sprite. Thus, other people can know a persons willingness to interact by observing their sprite. It also helps users identify friends in the area. This system simultaneously breaks the ice and gives meaning to every action.
