This system was built to study how VR might help kids exercise. It uses activity trackers (Zamzee) to track kids exercise, and allows them to use that exercise to help a virtual pet get better. Through the large-screen kiosk they set goals and play with their pet. By reaching goals, they could teach their pet new tricks.
