In a retirement home in Florida Pokemon Go is used to keep the senior citizens active and their minds fresh. The app is well known for its bad and good influences since the release a month ago. But in this case it is used for a good cause. The citizens are being challenged to walk more often. This way they find more Pokemon and they are working on hatching their eggs.
I find this a perfect and fun modern way to keep the citizen moving. They have a reason to get up and it is also a really social app. In the video you can see citizens talking about their Pokemon.
All there is left to say is, you go Florida.
Is your workout getting boring? I need a little research and your workout should not be boring according to all these crazy new workout types.

Or start with the annual South Korean Space out competition. It is easy you do not have to do anything, like really nothing. Just sitting around doing nothing just became a sport in South Korea. For all the lazy people among us.
Or travel to LA to participate in the newest US trend, a drum workout. Where you use drumsticks to workout. You use them on the floor and on yourself and are supposed to get in shape this way. Just watch the video. This looks awesome!
There are lots of other examples, like a workout and gaming together. But the most important thing is. I think something is happening here. I think People are getting bored and want to try out new things. Spice up their routines and do different things. Identify themselves by doing different.

Laurence Kembel-Kook gets it. Her job was to design a new way to create energy. She found the solution, beneath her feet. She discovered a way to create energy by walking over a tile. The Pavegen tiles where born. When put in high traffic areas the people moving over them create energy. Without even having to do something extra.
What is this all about? While I was writing one of my blogs for food, I discovered that the food industry is finally realizing they need to take their responsibility. And I think that is what we are seeing here. Companies are taking their own resposibilities to create a better world.
