GFH2010 Keynote Psych Up - Dr. Richard Marks - The Mind-Body Experience of Sony Move

Getting pumped for a great Games For Health Conference in Boston, Stephen Yang describes the conference and the "Big Catch" of keynote speaker Dr. Richard Marks.

In less than a week we will be putting the wraps on the biggest and best Games for Health Conference in Boston, MA. With 6 different tracks including ExerGaming/Active Gaming, Games for Sensorimotor Rehab, Cognitive & Emotional Health and more, there will be plenty to see and do. Be sure to follow me on Twitter (@syangman) and this blog for more exciting details of the G4H 2010 and be sure to use the hashtag #GFH2010. 

This year’s line-up is massive especially with Dr. Richard Marks giving the Keynote on  the Opening Day. His talk called “The Mind-Body Experience of Sony Move: Relationships between Gaming, Play, Exercise, and More!” will explore the many hurdles Sony's developers faced trying to follow-up on the success of EyeToy and adding new peripherals for improved game-play.

I still love EyeToy for its simplicity and ease of play for all generations and all abilities.  I am a little worried about the current generation of controllers that are getting so sophisticated that it will make it harder for people with disabilities to interact with the games.

Our full schedule will be available later in 2010 but you can see the planned schedule outline now here.  Check out some highlights from last year’s conference and many of the great speakers we had lined up. 
Get pumped for the GFH 2010 & Games Beyond Entertainment Week May 24-27, 2010 in Boston.
