Chow Time

Submitted By: Trevor Paradise

My game is called Chow Time. I imagine that video games will benefit the human race and not just benefit an entertainment aspect of a persons' life.

Like the Wii has done when Nintendo created Wii Fit, my game concept will help your diet through manipulating your brain to think you are eating something delectable while you are eating something healthy.

Chow Time will come with a diet guide that would help achieve your goals, along with a guide for physical fitness through another iteration of this game type.

The controls consist of a visor to cover your eyes that would use LEDs to show you the food you want to eat such as, Indian food, Mexican, Fast Food, Italian, etc.; but in fact you are eating something healthy.

Also, your nose will be connected to a smell device that would give you the smell of the food you have purchased. It will come in any flavor and any type of food you want this will trick your brain into thinking something else and since a lot of taste is connected through smell it will feel like you are eating the food you have purchased.

This game is meant for all ages and is a try to stop the overweight problems in America and promote healthy eating even if you think you are eating something bad for your body.

Through Chow Time you will be able to connect to Food TV channels and taste the food they are making in case you wanted to buy that food in the future. Television would also involve more senses through this game and inspire other people to make TV more interactive and feel real.

Chow Time will bring the world to a realization that games are not just a child's play thing and a device to change the world and help people with real world issues.

By making this game, hopefully healthy food will lower in price and raise the prices of negative food and also make the fast food companies change to smell food companies, delivering great taste and not just extra pounds.
