Rajesh Harie Life as a game is already happening

This is already happening. Look at Discovery Vitality, healthcare that rewards you for being healthy and offering discounts. Outsurance rewards safe driving measured by telemetry and awards discounted insurance premiums.

Life is becoming a game and its been driving by Gen Y who grew up with Playstations and games. Gaming as an industry is worth more than Hollywood and it has begun crossing over to life

The less we think about it, the more frightening it will become!

I so agree with you! The key is to be aware of it and work our way up to be future-ready. Why frighten rather can’t wait to be there; as Sir Arthur C Clarke said “it will be absolutely fantastic!”

Wolfgang Grulke RE: RE: Re: LIFE IS A GAME YOU CAN WIN

Funny you should mention ACC! I was lucky to spend a morning with him in Colombo, Sri Lanka, in the year before his death, and we talked at length about my favourite quote of his "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic!"

I often challenge executives: How can you make you business 'magic'? Especially in terms of the customer experience.

This is what we call 'Conscious Capitalism'!

Vivek Mittal RE: RE: Indeed a MIND game!!

Of course it is! It will be a win-win-win-win-win situation and guess what it will work for each one too.

Doug Vining The MBA is a game too

Using a game to teach new skills isn't new. But MIT seems to think that you should be able to do it online, to learn MBA skills, for free.

Not a bad idea. Isn't life, and business, and politics, just one great big game? Or is it far more serious than that?

Doug Vining Life is the ultimate game

In the future, we'll all be involved in games, even as we go about our daily lives.

And most of the time, we won't even consciously realise that it's happening to us. After all, loyalty programs and incentives are already rewarding us for certain behaviours, and that's essentially what a game is all about.

We published this MindBullet some months ago, and now this trend is confirmed by researchers and analysts, quoted in this news link.

Anton Musgrave Apps direct shopping...in whole new ways!

In a world where Apps are only beginning to show real commercial value, using the tool to inform shopping decisions will become increasingly main stream. Add some fuel from social networks and the cocktail assumes powerful proportions. Savvy retailers will embrace the possibilities but others, with elements of their business that they would rather hide, need to be aware...the social, savvy, serious world of App driven decision making is around the corner.

Doug Vining Working for the win

The Economist takes a reasoned look at the gamification of management and asks if it isn't all just a fad.

Perhaps it is, but we speculate that it is one that has yet to run its course. Digital games are now a $67 billion industry - that's a lot of gold!

Doug Vining Life's a game

And Google just became the biggest player. Again the incumbents and market leaders, like World of Warcraft and others, will wonder who ate their lunch while they were focused somewhere else!

Do you remember how Gmail started by invitation only, and now it dominates web mail? This could go the same way.

Doug Vining Gaming for a job

Games are great for teaching simple skills that can be a major advantage in the tech-driven future. Another winner at the bottom of the pyramid!

Anton Musgrave Quantified self...are YOU ready for a brave new world?

Merging the possibilities of big data, gamification, ubiquitous sensors, mobile apps and data visualisation leads to the new idea of the quantified self. A time where every aspect of human behaviour can be synthesised to create new behaviours - from as simple as driving a car more efficiently to changing fundamental behavioural characteristics. Its scary yet exciting. A truly brave new world awaits.

Doug Vining Winning at the game of life

Will education become nothing more than a fantastic game where the reward is a degree qualification?

Perhaps the ultimate conclusion to the gamification of life will be a situation where there is no formal education, it's just built into the games we play as we live and work!
