"Social Suika-wari System" enables suika-wari to be played using social media.
"Suika-wari" refers to a traditional Japanese game in which a blindfolded person tries to locate a watermelon (suika in Japanese) by listening to the directions given by people nearby and then attempts to break the watermelon open with a long stick.
SSS enables suika-wari to be played using social media. It utilizes a social networking service (SNS) to enable people in remote locations to provide directions to a person wearing a head-mounted display (HMD) as a blindfold.
Since SSS is a simple system that provides insights into the opinions of Internet users through the medium of visual information, it has the potential to be utilized for a broad range of promotions, including real-time voting during events, content that provides hints from Internet-based opinions, and Internet user opinion surveys during live broadcasts.
