The word “gamification” usually conjures up a whole bunch of images and concepts for you- the kind of games that you could get with social media like t.v. or with internet based games like Farmville, but this term is very broad and can sometimes be applied to other things. So let’s dive into what we mean by “gamification” in gaming.
Games are very much part of your everyday life: from simple arcade games like a video lottery game (that really gets you to get in the gaming mood), to more structured ones like an arm and hand fitness program and training for weight loss. Old blog: Gamification is the concept of using an “augmented reality” to guide users towards a desired outcome of an activity or system.
Gaming is simply social interaction that can be done digitally, whether it is using games or using augmented reality or virtual reality technologies. This may seem really futuristic, but the fact is it is already happening. If you would like to learn more about the technology on how people are using augmented reality then check out how they are using virtual reality games to get out of the gym. A personal favorite is how it is used by gamers, like myself, and the results seen.
