"It’s not just a game, it’s a quest to help scientists fight dementia!”

It


sounds too good to be true but this really is a game, where simply by


having loads of fun chasing creatures around magical seas and swamps,


you can help to fight a disease that currently affects 45 million people


worldwide.

In fact playing SEA HERO QUEST for just 2 minutes will generate the equivalent of 5 hours of lab-based research data.

Created


by GLITCHERS, presented by Deutsche Telekom and supported by scientists


from University College London and University of East Anglia and the


lovely people at Alzheimer’s Research, SEA HERO QUEST is an epic


culmination of science and gameplay that will change the way dementia


research is done forever.

So untrained members of the general public can achieve in 5 minutes what it takes trained lab workers to achieve in 5 hours?

Why don't the lab workers just play the game instead?

'One of the first symptoms of dementia is loss of navigational skills. Doctors cannot differentiate between getting lost caused by disease and getting lost caused by natural ageing because a benchmark of “normal” does not exist.

Until now … because as you play, your navigational data is tracked anonymously, stored securely and combined with every other player from around the globe, to create the world’s largest crowd sourced data set benchmarking human spatial navigation. This incredible resource will eventually lead to the development of new diagnosis tools and treatments for dementia. '
Played this on daydream, fun little game.
Looks fun.
