Abstract:People with a mild intellectual disability experience difficulties in daily life activities that require fine motor skills, such as tying shoelaces or writing with a pen. Because of this, they need help multiple times a day with performing these activities. This thesis focuses on creating an application that can stimulate people with a mild intellectual disability to train their fine motor skills in order to increase independence during daily life. The application consists of a game projected on a tabletop combined with motion tracking, causing the user to interact by moving their arms and hands in mid-air. The application has been reviewed by multiple experts and three user tests have been performed (N=4, N=2, N=3). The results showed that participants could perform all interactions on the created interactive tabletop game with satisfactorily result. From the results, a list of criteria has been established containing the elements that an interactive tabletop application should contain in order to be suitable for the target group and in order to keep the user motivated to train their fine motor skills. However, due to COVID-19 the product is not tested with people with a mild intellectual disability, so further research is necessary.
