Runner up Nano Supermarket Best Product 2014

Besides that, I am glad to announce my Healing Game became Runner Up of the Nano Supermarket Best Product 2014! Below is a piece from the press release:
“According to the jury there is a coherence between the winner product and the runner-up. First of all, because they both address very fundamental topics for today society: health and senses. The relationship we develop with either our senses and our health and body is a grand theme developed and questioned everywhere.

The Healing Game allows patients to steer their medication by playing a videogame. By means of a so-called serious game it is possible to contribute something to somebody illness, going into a person’s body and kill cancer cells. The committee appreciated the direct link between the game and the inside of the human body, in particular the fact that the nano particles are introduced into the body and connected to the game. The jury has been impressed by the very thorough way this contributor has developed the game: it is visually appealing and the videogame really works. Although the Healing Game represents an important contribution that gives attention to a debate that needs to be discussed, there are still some questions involved in whether it is technologically possible to realize it.”
