    Abstract

    Virtual reality-based computer games may be a useful way to develop motor skills and increase activity levels in children. We have developed an interactive computer platform where users must tilt a wobble board to complete on-screen computer game tasks. We have conducted a pilot study with 81 school children who played the game and used a questionnaire to gather information on children's enjoyment levels and perceptions of the system. Findings showed a high level of enjoyment with the game and provided useful information for future research and development.
