The Light Games Board

A project to seek ways to help the aging population keep more socially active via a luminous wellbeing product. Board gaming is a very popular pastime amongst older people, their friends and their families and it has been proven to help create meaningful social connections with others as well as keeping the users cognitively active. The Light Games Board allows the users to focus at the game more easily by keeping track of the board tiles and turns, which in turn allows them to spare energy for the social side of the gaming.
