Abstract: This paper presents a novel childhood obesity prevention system called No Pain No Game which aims at encouraging children to fit physical exercise into their daily life; the more entertainment they demand, the more exercise they have to perform. The proposed system evaluates children’s activity level and assigns them corresponding amount of home entertainment time such as television viewing or playing video games. This way, children can obtain a sense of achievement, while parents can save the time without manually controlling the corresponding entertainment appliances. No Pain No Game gives parents full wireless control over the home’s power outlets without obliging them to struggle with their children. Furthermore, through No Pain No Game’s software interface, children are able to extend their home entertainment time without the presence of their parents.
