Half-Court Show

My research project with the RMIT Exertion Games Lab in Melbourne, Australia.  With a sub-$100 screen system, can we encourage people to play more basketball? Signs point to yes!  We ran 3 different tests with this, one with a cumulative daily score counter, one with a incrementing timer listing seconds between baskets, and a display that showed a mix of encouragement and trash-talk.  Turns out, you can effectively support talking smack with technology – who knew?
