In this position paper we describe our vision on
designing playful interactions to persuade people to be
physically active in public spaces. Social embeddedness
and playful interaction are the core elements of this
vision. We illustrate how our design vision is
incorporated into innovative concepts that stimulate
physical activity for various user groups and in various
use contexts, and present some general findings on the
basis of these cases. New technologies such as mobile
networks and social media provide new opportunities
for creating location-independent solutions that support
groups of people to motivate each other to be
physically active by creating challenges for each other.
Designing playful solutions for public spaces asks for
low-threshold solutions that support easy stepping in
and stepping out solutions.
