Video games offer consequence-free environments which are capable of evoking strong emotions from their players; by couching interpersonal touch within a game, we can allow the act to remain light-hearted and unthreatening while still retaining it’s emotional impact [7]. Games such as Dance Dance Revolution and SingStar have demonstrated how activities which may otherwise be uncomfortable or embarrassing (such as dancing or singing in front of a crowd) can become a source of amusement when they are integrated into a social game.

We believe that Matchmaker provides a lighthearted and fun way to overcome awkwardness and to introduce innocent physical contact in new relationships. Acknowledgements.

A computer model of branching responses of apple trees ( Malus domestica) with different levels of pruning schemes is presented. The model simulates the number and distributions of the axillary production along one-year-old parent branches using the Hidden Semi-Markov Chain (HSMC). Results show that (a) simulation system efficiently provides the required information at the desired level of accuracy, and (b) the branch growth model is extremely well calibrated against real apple trees and (c) the system can simulate many interesting growth situations with direct feedback from the different levels of pruning schemes presenting the parent branches’ characteristics, such as, location of flower, fruit setting, and so on.
