A Responsive and Persuasive Audio Device to Stimulate Exercise and Fitness in Children

While I’m in the business of posting videos about musical instruments for children, I wanted to post a link to the video my group created for the New Product Development class in the Fall of 2005. The course had students from the Engineering School, the School of Information, the Haas School of Business (all from UC-Berkeley) and Industrial Design students from the California College of the Arts. Here’s a link to the paper we wrote fro CHI 2006 and the poster.

The basic idea of the product is to motivate children to move and dance by varying the speed at which the music is played. The speed changes based on how quickly and energetically the child is dancing.
