Nike+ Treadmill Game
After adorning special Nike shoes, players stepped up to sleek self-powered treadmills from which we were reading live running data. In front of the players, a virtual kinect-powered avatar was displayed on a gigantic curved LED wall. Their avatar would not only mimmick their stride, but filled up with color the harder they worked during the race. After an arduous 30 seconds, runners were rewarded with different sized virtual trophies based on their distance, and a generated graph displayed their progress over time during the race.
Over the course of the 10 day event, nearly 2,500 players cumulatively ran over 200 miles firmly sending the message that running can be interactive, and that the best is yet to come.
