Thte "womb of technology"

7-8-10: Ok, so this is the Exergaming Evangelist's soapbox...that doesn't mean I just blindly support anything exergaming, but want to look at all sides of this growing field.

Here's an interesting piece by Jonathan McCalmont on Microsoft's Kinect and where he thinks this type of technology is leading us. Click on the link to read about it:

Think he's right or is it a doomsday perspective? You be the judge.

Yes, I would agree. Technology has play more fun online than outdoors and we are forgetting the basics of interaction. Humans are social creatures, but without the ability, opportunity and confidence to engage - the virtual world provides a "safe" alternative.

To be honest, I don't think is is about exergaming, it's about technology in general and should be a wake up call to socially responsible government.

We can re-deliver all the confidence and ability using exergaming to get people happy with the real world, but where's the support and more to the point safe opportunities from our blessed leaders?
