What a splendid idea!
Bayer Diabetes Care (in the UK) announced a piece of hardware that can be used to and (quote) ‘rewards children for consistent testing’ – of their blood samples, that is.
Seems this gadget goes into the Nintendo DS and Lite in their GBA port (which the new DS version misses). The you insert your samples and get rewarded. I can’t see how this reward works in detail from their website though.
Now that’s what I call a Serious Game.
