Games for Health: Recap

A few weeks ago, I was a keynote speaker at the Games for Health conference in Amsterdam. I talked about social games, crowdsourcing in medicine and science and also about the importance of including health gaming in medical education. I have to say I had a great time there, saw many promising innovations and as a lover of video games, I tried many projects and gadgets myself.

Projects and ideas I came across there:

Figurerunning: draw figures on the map when running by using their smartphone application.

Use your bike and run or walk around in the virtual world.

Medsim: a birth simulation.

I’m pretty sure I’ll be at Games for Health 2012 as well! See you there!
