Abstract
This paper presents a holistic approach to design a media system based on a new user interface and interaction device aimed to motivate seniors of the generation plus enhancing their daily physical activity. As a result of the newly designed game, the senior finds himself within a colorful world of a game in which he interacts with small lively figures using a newly designed interaction device accounting for physical activity. The combination of both design elements, lead to a gameplay that provides adequate mechanism for cognitive and physical activity, challenging representatives of the generation plus to exercise more.
