Through the ProFit Innovation Competition 2012 for FieldLab Delft businesses and students were challenged to develop all season concepts to be used by both children (age 8-12) and elderly. The winning concept was Serious Gaming by the company Yalp. It did not only win the award in Delft, but also the overall ProFit Innovation Competition 2012 award for all four FieldLabs (Eindhoven, Delft, Kortrijk, Sheffield).
Serous Gaming can be described as a set of interactive poles, which offer a variety of games, including active movement and brain training. All seven poles consist of a display and LED-lighting and are able to communicate text, images and animations. The poles are positioned in a public space. Players move between the poles. Movement sensors enable the poles to react to the players. At this moment at FieldLab Delft.a first version of Serious Gaming is being installed as a prototype to be tested.
