The Loop gaming platform is comprised of the Loop Clip, motion bar, headphones and an open source game platform
The motion bar tracks physical movement and interacts with the clip to record data
Loop's developers wanted to encourage not just physical but social activity in young people
By exerting more energy through running and jumping, players are better rewarded in the video game
