The Economist had a short article titled Let’s Get Physical on “exergaming” â€”Â gaming that combines play with exercise. At the same time, Fabien wrote a thought-provoking blog post on the Nokia Sports Tracker and Tracing Personal Mobility. This stuff got me thinking about these weak-signals around exercise, play, gaming, fitness. I wrote a little comment on Fabien’s blog about the different ways to turn sport into electronic gaming and play in some fashion, or the challenges around that. Much work is associated with GPS or pedometers and that sort of thing, or stats-based stuff.
I wonder how far beyond the more or less obvious solutions like GPS and pedometers we can go? And then what beyond the usual stats cards and graphs?
