Skill Lab

Have you ever thought about what makes you special as a gamer? Is your mind super-sharp to ace certain types of games? Which skills have you developed as a gamer?

Skill Lab: Science Detective is a collection of minigames with a detective story theme that challenges your mind in different ways. The game enables you to test your gaming brain skills. In this process, ScienceAtHome can generate a map of your cognitive skills at different levels.

We want to know your strengths and weaknesses for better understanding how they affect your performance in the other games from The Center for Hybrid Intelligence. Maybe having a good memory makes players rock the Alien Game? Is hand-eye coordination the basis for success in Quantum Moves? We can't wait to find out!

All of this information will help us develop a better gaming experience for you. We will also get crucial hints on how to make our players contribute to scientific problems more effectively. At the same time, you will have access to your Cognitive map and get a snapshot of where your expertise lies and which skills you are yet to master.

As if this wasn’t enough, when you play Skill Lab: Science Detective, you are helping the research community understand the normal development of different cognitive skills.
With the help from our citizen science community to deliver a large number of gameplays, The Center for Hybrid Intelligence could even use this information to understand some cognitive problems and how they can be identified in early stages to prevent their emergence. This would a be similar approach to other Citizen science projects such as Sea Hero Quest.

Please note that we can only analyze your performance across all of our games if you register as a user and sign in before playing!

This game helps our research in:

  • Understanding cognitive skills.
  • Understanding how differences in cognitive skills influence performance in other SAH games.
