Ubilife is an initiative created by Associate Professor Teemu H. Laine (PhD) with a goal to foster research on ubiquitous technologies and services in the fields of education and wellbeing. Current research and development activities in Ubilife focus on games for education and exercise. Games are used as a medium because they have been shown to possess great potential for boosting intrinsic motivation in players. Furthermore, ubiquitous technologies (mobile devices, wireless networks, sensors, etc) have an essential role in enabling truly context-sensitive content and activities. This results in immersive experiences where the virtual game world connects to the physical world surrounding the user.
This website contains detailed information about Prof. Laine’s past and present research projects, publications, teaching portfolio and people involved with Ubilife. Many of the past projects were created with Dr. Carolina Islas Sedano and Mikko Vinni who are the co-founders of Ubium Oy with Prof. Laine.
