Swinx is a Dutch game system that interacts with children as they play. Using RFID enabled arm bands, it encourages children to run and move. A lime green, clover-shaped console runs the games by telling players what the games are, how to play them, keeps score, acts as referee and even cheers players on.

Players can also track their personal performances based on their Swinxs wrist band and new games can be downloaded by connecting the console to the web.

Oh, the system can also play music and tell stories… hang on – a story-based gaming device?!
