    Abstract

    In this study we propose a way to motivate healthy people to do indoor physical activities more often. A lack of physical activity is thought to be responsible for an increasing number of patients suffering from lifestyle-related diseases. It is very important that people do physical activities regularly even though they are healthy. Thus we build a prototype system where people see fireworks projected on the wall. These fireworks will become more powerful, graceful and various as they keep doing physical activities. Finally it is shown that progressive fireworks are successfully displayed depending on the amount of time of physical activities.
