Be Online Together Outside, Kids!

Are your children addicted to online video games? Don’t worry! They soon will be. Designer Tamer Nakisci’s “Smartground” is a playground connected to the internet. Once a child steps onto the playing field, they are in the online battleground with every other child on the planet. Fighting for their lives! Or just points.

As each child enters play, their network is notified: gadgets, keychains, pendants, of their friends and opponents light up, challenging them to also come play at a Smartground site.

Games are played with the different 3-D pieces available at each Smartground site in conjunction with touch-sensitive LEDs. The entire playground encourages children to be with the whole world all by themselves!

This is just like what Kevin Kelly said would happen!
