It's been great chatting with Eelke Folmer, Floyd Mueller, Ann Maloney, Ernie Medina, Deb Lieberman, Ed Kassanders, Belinda Lange, Sheryl Flynn and more.

The Power of Play

“Innovation often involves the fusion of different perspectives to create a new way of thinking. Active-play video games have already changed the landscape for consumers who want to be more physically active. ‘The Power of Play’ summit will offer a unique chance to look closely at ways in which technology and physical activity can both be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle.”
- Indu Subaiya, co-founder of Health 2.0

  1. Hi Stephen,

    The Animoto 'Visual' presentation is tremendously rousing. Great to see a presentation which is as dynamic as the genre of ExerGaming itself. Nice cross section of catagories and montage of pictures with a driving sound track to hold our interest. A great video/posterboard at any conference :)
