Exploiting robotics and modern artificial intelligence (AI), we create playware in the form of intelligent hardware and software that creates play and playful experiences for users of all ages, including seniors. Such playware technology acts as a play force which inspires and motivates seniors to enter into a play dynamics, in which they forget about time and place, and simultaneously increase their skills - cognitive, physical, and social skills. A prime example of this is the modular interactive tiles system, Moto tiles (www.mototiles.com), which is designed as an alternative form of physical training to allow seniors to break away from monotonous training programs, and participate in an exercise that is fun and exciting, and therefore more motivating. Qualitative studies show that therapists and seniors find the training with modular interactive tiles fun and highly motivating. Importantly, scientific clinical effect studies have shown that training with the Moto Tiles has a large effect on the functional abilities. It is shown that playful training gives significant health effects with substantially less training sessions than what is needed with traditional training methods. For instance, balancing test scores increase with 150% among seniors (avg 83 yo). Further, brain scanning and cognitive tests give evidence to the increased cognitive performance of people from playing on the Moto Tiles, thereby granting the Hitachi brain science mark. As exercise creates stronger and bigger hippocampus and pre-frontal cortex, effective exercising has protective effects for the brain against neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer, and general cognitive decline with ageing. The Moto Tiles are inspired by LEGO to create the interactive LEGO block for physical play, and it is designed as “small is smart” so that it can be transported and set up for anybody, anytime, anywhere within less than a minute – thus it can be used both in institutions and in private homes of seniors.
