Active Gaming Research Academy

Discover our gaming labs: “Active games are technology driven activities that require participants to engage in physical movement in order to play the games. A noteworthy aspect of active gaming is that participants do not realize they are exercising; ... It is desirable to examine and understand the experiences and health benefits for both children and adults while participating in active gaming.” (Witherspoon & Sanders, 2008)
