Samba (Super Accelerated Motion and Body Activity)

Chanda Dasgupta and his fellow grad students in MS Human-Computer Interaction, Learning by Design Lab
at the Georgia Institute of Technology put this idea overview of integrating a heart rate monitor, accelerometer into a game. They call it SAMBA (Super Accelerated Motion and Body Activity) because it encourages and rewards children for being active throughout the day. More to come...
Although there was no proof of concept or game developed, the idea of Samba and some of their other solutions for combating childhood obesity is commendable.
