Games prove to be winning fitness motivators

After years of failed attempts at self-motivation, it was an app that finally got Sally Albert out of bed and exercising every morning.

 

An Android app, designed as part of a Stanford study, ultimately delivered her the necessary kick in the rear.

robyns tut's insight:

I fully support the continuos evolution of science and technology, especially if it is helping improve the lives of people for the better. However, as much as it seems to be encouraging people to lead healthier lives, I feel that people will increasingly be dependant on technology to dictate how they ought to live their lives. And that for me is unfortunate, because people thus allow technology to define who they are.With that being said, the impact that science and technology have on society has played a big role in emancipating the way in which people live, and it has definitely gven us more options and opportunity for personal, social and economic growth.

This is a great way to promote fitness. You may not know who your behaviour or energy level is perceived by others, but now your bird icon will show you. Very smart way to get people conscious of their health and exercise routine.

this is a useful device as it is an app that helps people get outdoors and get fit through the coaxing of their cellphones. in the past people relied on alarm clocks which they could easily snooze. great idea -shannon wilson
