Abstract

In this paper we analyze the aesthetics of some modern videogames and controllers. We focus on the role that physical body develops in the cases shown. Our study states there is a process which we have named digitalization of the body. Modern games and controllers design tend to pay great attention to player’s body. This is a significant change on various aspects of aesthetics of new technologies, from which we highlight transformations on the humanmachine relationship and a closer integration between physical and digital.
