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 the French digital Kitchen– an innovative cooking environment that features cooking utensils and ingredient containers with digitally embedded sensors alongside interactive displays, which track and evaluate a student’s activity. The space, housed at Newcastle University in the UK, is aimed at improving students’ mastery of French cooking and French language skills, as all spoken and written reminders and explanations are given in both French and English. During trials at the university, users with a range of different levels of French, showed the ability to learn targeted grammar and vocabulary items in the cooking tasks, as well as new cooking methods and techniques.
