Sonic Trampoline: How Audio Feedback Impacts the User’s Experience of Jumping

To investigate how auditory augmentation influences user jumping activity on an elastic trampoline, the authors developed a system to interactively augment the trampoline’s sound. The system’s sound design is inspired by iconic jumping sounds from games, with sensing technology based on a combination of motion tracking with depth camera and audio-based contact sensing between the feet and trampoline.

Results show that such interactive sonification stimulates changes in the user’s behavior toward increased performance during the exercise; it also positively affects the user experience.
