You really shouldn’t need an incentive to get out and move your body. There is so much fun to be had outdoors. Unfortunately, some of us need a little bit of a push to get out. Loop can help. It is an outdoor gaming platform that rewards playing for getting active. It uses proximity sensors, GPS, and accelerometers to track movement. The platform is compatible with PCs, tablets, and smartphones.
Loop aims to get children moving again. It has a Loop Clip, Motion Bar, and headphones. An open source gaming platform is also available. The bar can be used as a location marker while the Loop Clip has a pedometer, audio outputs, and solid state storage to hold interactive stories. The wand and clip communicate over Bluetooth. As players move more, they unlock new game content. Now that’s one way to get children moving and interested in the process.
