Athene is a new exergaming environment for exercising, fitness testing and rehabilitation. It combines various gym and rehabilitation equipment (treadmill, exercise bike, etc.) with virtual and video environments, sports applications, immersive gaming view and advanced motion control (Kinect camera etc.). Athene will change the next generation gym training into reality!
Athene is targeted to gyms, where customers can enjoy and experience different kind of jogging, rowing and biking routes. Athene provides beautiful virtual environments e.g. in forest, city and mountain environments. The exergaming modes include basic training, exercise testing and rehabilitation. Each of these can be spiced up with competitions as well as adventure games.
Athene theme song will be introduced at the world largest Fitness, wellness & health event, FIBO (April 2014), where Athene will compete in the Innovation awards finals (http://www.fibo.de/?sprache=englisch).
What we are looking for?
When Athene is in the “waiting mode”, the menu screen and short video clips of different exercising routes (like forest and mountain sceneries are looped. The theme music should tempt people to use it for exercising.
The theme song should include three parts:
1. Intro, appr. 5-8 s., works also alone without the rest of the song e.g. when used in a presentation.
2. Middle part A, appr. 30-50 s., can be looped so that it can be repeated as long as one wishes.
3. Middle part B, appr. 30-50 s., which is a boosted version of middle part A. It should be more energetic, higher tempo and/or include more instruments. This should also be possible to be looped in different game modes.
4. End, 5-10 s. “closing” part.
The feeling we are seeking is something that makes you want to start doing physical exercise. The music will provide the final touch to an awesome training experience in Athene exergaming environment.
Athene theme song could be a cool lounge song boosted with energy, sports and pure nature.
