Exertion Framework at CHI 2011

Designing Sports: A Framework for Exertion Games will be presented at CHI 2011 in Vancouver, Canada, in May 2011. Acceptance rate was only 26%.
This long paper presents an understanding of how designers can approach the design of exertion games, offering insights from the design and teaching of exertion games. This work was done in collaboration with the University of Melbourne, Stanford University, Microsoft Research, the London Knowledge Lab and the University of Technology Sydney.

Stanford Center on Longevity

I was invited to a conference on the health impacts of too much sitting, at the Stanford Center on Longevity, where I spoke about the potential benefits of using computer games to get people to stand more often. There is a nice video here, and a newspaper article here.

Fulbright at Stanford

I am fortunate enough to have been awarded a Fulbright fellowship that allows me to spend 1 year at Stanford University, USA as a visiting scholar.
The first week was already action packed, I saw great students presentations from classes that dealt with technology solutions for 3rd world problems in Africa, supported by Nokia's Jofish and Tico, and mechanical engineering projects done in teams with Berlin's Hasso-Plattner Institute and a university in Helsinki, sponsored by Samsung, Mini etc. Each team had several thousand dollars as a budget and presented to their industry partner in the end.
I also attended the first Fulbright event, and will twitter more about individual events when they arise.
Today is the beginning of week two.

Week 7 at Microsoft Research Asia

Designed a visual presentation of a framework for Exertion games:

The example here shows Table Tennis for Three from a single-player perspective, I have left out the arrows for the other 2 players, but they are equivalent.
