One innovative approach to addressing this problem is Exergaming. A combination of "Exercise" and "Gaming", the objective is to motivate people participate in exercise regimes, usually in their home environment. In this paper a more holistic interpretation of this exercise paradigm is proposed. Freegaming augments Exergaming in a number of key dimensions but especially through the promotion of games in outdoor mobile contexts and within a social environment. The design and implementation of a platform for Freegaming is described and illustrated through the description of a sample game.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Copyright (published version):||ACM 2010||Keywords:||Multiagent systems; Augmented reality; Pervasive health; Exergaming; Mobile computing||Subject LCSH:||Multiagent systems
