Playgrounds that offer far more than fun
PGC Smart Playgrounds featuring Biba are a wise investment in public health, and return the cost of providing community playgrounds with increased enjoyment and use.
The Biba technology used in PGC Smart Playgrounds is based on years of motivational design and psychology research. Research has shown that kids in a Biba-powered PGC Smart Playground will play longer, harder and much more often. While parents play with their children, all the while increasing their children’s fitness and strengthening family bonds.
PGC Smart Playgrounds featuring Biba translate healthy gameplay into a series of advanced analytics for the benefit of families and communities.
Gameplay data is gathered and stored using protocols that ensure absolute privacy and protection.
Track fitness data and organise play dates
The Biba Playground Games App’s Play Tracker feature which gives parents private access to their child’s gameplay data, as well as offering a host of other helpful functions. Families can use the Play Tracker feature to see how their child’s game time is contributing to the 60 minutes of physical activity per day that’s recommended for children. While kids will enjoy seeing their progress through a series of fun fitness facts calculated from their play.
The App also includes the Play Dates feature which enables parents to send invitations to other parents to get together for Biba play dates based on the game of their choice – all from within the game itself.
Informative insights for communities
Gameplay data is de-identified and aggregated into compelling insights for playground planners, schools and Councils in New Zealand, to learn more about their community play spaces.
Reports are generated monthly, progressively building a playground profile for each community, to establish play patterns, identify periods of peak demand, daily demographics and understand the influence of weather on playground attendance.
Biba games are best for kids aged 3 to 9 and offer everything from obstacle courses to treasure hunts to make believe adventures and team play. For example, Biba Drive has children completing laps of a racetrack and taking ‘pit stops’ with their parent to ‘refuel’ using the phone. In Dino Dig, kids take on the role of an archaeologist, crawling through tunnels and climbing ladders to reach ‘dig sites’ before using the phone to uncover dinosaur bones. And there are many more Biba games to enjoy!
