Limber, in its current iteration, is a vision-based application that introduces gamification into the workplace. This ongoing effort to incentivize good posture, and regular body movements implements several changes to include; full body stretches (figure 2), team gaming elements, and an ambient display (figure 1). With increased intra and inter team competition our field study of twelve players in a work place aims to better understand the most popular motivators, and answer the question, can gamification promote more healthy behaviour among office workers? What forms of motivation are most effective: personal, intra or inter-group?
