Make your Game Real!
We will like to propose a fun way to learn about the potential of smart energy solution by creating three symbiotic elements. First, a game which combines the like of FarmVille and age of empire, will help educate the players of the benefits and issues of building smart and self-sufficient cities. By linking the first game with the second game, we will be able to push real data to give them a better sense of realism. As they realize the energy is not enough, they can convince or challenge their friends to reduce energy usage, which is monitored through the smart home energy monitoring system. Lastly, when the time is right, the game can be transform into real life smart cities with the participants of these people, just because they know the benefits and their ability to contribute.
