Ways to Engage the Brain

An interesting point on how any activity could be transformed into a game to make it more engaging for users and them to reach their end goal. The example the speaker gave was to incorporate gaming principles to motivate participants to lose weight. After watching this video and reflecting on its contents, I can see this concept and its principles are applied in a variety TV shows and websites.  It could also be used in classrooms and businesses. I think to make a game like this will require careful consideration of the game components, the objectives, and determining where and when to add the gaming principles mentioned by the speaker. One point that was unclear to me when thinking about the “fitness game” was the method that would be used to collect the data and the person responsible for recording them.
