Design Guidelines for Augmented Reality Serious Games for Children

PhD Thesis, Jingya Li

Today’s children are born in a world with rapid growth of multimedia technologies and are used to handling all kinds of digital devices, they furthermore appear to be attracted to digital games and spend a lot of time with them. Consequently, digital games for educational purposes, also known as serious games, have become an increasingly important method for learning and instruction. However, empirical evidence of serious games being more motivating is still lacking, and as many serious games focus on single-player instruction, serious gameplay can sometimes be a physically and socially isolating experience.

Bringing valuable insights to office environments by visualizing health–data

FMP project by Matthijs Hoekstra

… Hangzhou Bobo is developing a sensor which can be implemented in, for example, an office chair. This sensor can measure several health-related data and thus can provide an employee with direct feedback and insights … Hangzhou Bobo is currently pre-occupied with creating a relationship with SUNON a Chinese office equipment producing company within China. For this partnership, there is an integrated value proposition for the sensor detailing the design and technology. This proposition is solely focused on the Chinese market and therefore not adapted to any countries outside of China. As indicated by others, companies operating in different market networks (e.g. Europe and China) need to adjust their strategies to be successful, as the context can differ both on a cultural level. Thus, it is necessary to change the current proposition into an adapted one for the European market; this, therefore, includes exploring the business landscape in Europe and defining new (design) directions for using the data in office environments in the EU.
