Exergaming, a combination of ”exercise” and ”gaming” was conceived as a means of addressing this problem. In this paper a mobile collaborative exergame, which is designed to be enjoyable and physically challenging, is presented. The long term objective is to harness conventional mobile computing technologies to deliver a platform for games that are adaptive to the exercise requirements of individual children.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE Computer Society||Copyright (published version):||2009 by The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.||Subject LCSH:||Exercise--Software
