Abstract

Contemporary lifestyle is becoming increasingly sedentary with no or little physical activity. We propose a novel design for physical activity motivating games that leverages engagement with games in order to motivate users to perform physical activity as part of traditionally sedentary playing. This paper focuses on the wearable activity interface for physical activity motivating games. We discuss the activity interface design considerations, present physical activity processing details, and analyse some observations of user interaction with the activity interface.
