Boeing is the world's leading aerospace company and the largest manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft.

Our Paper Airplane Building Game Simulator is a game in which a player’s goal is to organize a factory of humans and robots to assemble one or more paper airplanes.

The game begins with a default layout of humans and robots along with a budget and a time limit. A player can manipulate the position of humans and robots before the simulation takes place while robots may be purchased from the Game Shop.

Pressing the play button begins the simulation. The different game objects then proceed to carry out their different functions. Once the paper pieces are taped together, they form a large sheet of paper, which is folded into a paper airplane.

During the simulation the overall safety on the factory floor is taken into account. Safety concerns such as collisions between the factory workers are highlighted and warnings are issued.

A player can pause the simulation and edit the setup including purchasing more robots if they have enough funds. A player can advance if the paper airplanes are constructed within the time limit, budget and safety violations threshold.

Our Paper Airplane Building Game Simulator is compatible with Ubuntu 12.04 and runs above the Gazebo Robotics Simulator, uses Ogre3D renderer and Bullet Physics.
