In our research for the Future Of Gaming report, the PSFK consulting team explored the ways developers are making their games compelling and accessible to a wider audience. One example of innovation in Game Functionality And Systems is Greengoose. The start-up Greengoose uses motion-powered sensors and accelerometers to track a user’s everyday activities and credit them online. users attach small sensors to their body or any item they choose, turning anything from a toothbrush to a frisbee into a motion-powered activity monitor, which will automatically relay data to an online dashboard. The sensors are wireless and have a battery inside that lasts a year. Each one measures a different activity, communicating with a small base-station that records information online. the platform helps to bring online games to life in the real world, by requiring users to engage in activities away from the computer.
