Challenge J

„Play outside“

Powered by pozyx.io

Proposed by digitalhub cologne

Background/Problem

Kids and teenagers love playing with their mobile phones and tablets, but are often not incentivized to exercise, do sports, socialize and get some fresh air. This leads to the known effects of childhood obesity, social isolation and video game addiction amongst others.

Actual Challenge

The actual challenge is to combine both, the benefits of working out with your friends in the fresh air and the demand to play with smartphones. This could be done by means of an outdoor, multiplayer AR-game. Using gamification elements, kids will have a huge incentive to play the game.

Stretch goal

Don’t only think about kids. This game could probably also be used for medical rehabilitation, or by the elderly or just by everyone. It might also be useful in a professional setting as a team building tool.
