This week’s videos and articles focused on a plethora of examples of games that focused on health and technology. Some examples of the games described can be created and downloaded with apps and a tracking system like the one used in the very famous and entertaining Pokemon Go app. Games like the ones mentioned above are becoming a trend in which it keeps people active and engaged with their community. Another game which intrigued me a lot that was shared this week was the Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) game featuring kick boxing. This game shows many levels of stamina, strength, agility, memorization and overall health perks that can keep someone active while having a good time. Overall, these up and coming technological health games are created through innovation and a sense of drive, they will change the way we see health in the future.
