Does music help you run better?
23 November 2021 Does music help you run better?

Running is one of the more popular sports in the Netherlands. While running, we listen to music. Special playlists and apps support you. We collect data with wearables; soles, smartwatches and phones, but none of it really helps you to run better. What if we used all this data to help you run better and without injuries?

The major sports associations sounded the alarm; children do not move enough. Primary schools are exploring learning to move, but because of the focus on cognitive development, the space within the curriculum remains limited. How can we solve this, especially now that children's daily lives are becoming increasingly digital? Wouter Sluis-Thiescheffer, research lead Applied Games at Fontys, sees opportunities in combining moving learning and exergames, where movement and cognitive development go hand in hand. Can you stimulate and monitor the development of children in both areas with smart games? Fontys is looking into this within the Vitality Living Lab project.

The Dutch ecological footprint is more than 3 times bigger than what our planet has to offer. On average, that is about 5 hectares for each inhabitant, while there are no more than 1.6 hectares available if we were to divide it up fairly. To turn these abstract measuring units into a real experience, Atelier Vrijdag joined forces with Fontys students to develop a light art work at Strijp-S. Here, visitors literally search for the boundaries of their footprint.
