We are at the beginning of a new era in the integration of the physical world into gameplay. Devices from the game industry, like Microsoft’s kinect and the Nintendo Wii, are first steps into something that will bring our bodies into the games, while from the world of sports and fitness, Jawbone’s UP and Nike’s fuelband are encroaching on the interfaces and functionality of games. These sessions will address the use of games for health (and addressing illness), as well as what gameplay does for and to our bodies. We have joined with several expert organizations to explore the current state of knowledge in this area. A keynote speaker at 10AM will be followed by three panels and a social hour at 6PM.
