In June 2015, Delicode Ltd was asked to design and develop a mini-game for Polar Electro, a well known Finnish manufacturer of sports training computers and heart rate monitoring equipment. The theme was #PolarSankarit, or "Polar Heroes", focusing on the fact that you can stay healthy by accomplishing simple everyday exercises like taking the dog out, taking the stairs (instead of the elevator) or beating a carpet.

The campaign is taking place in various shopping centres around Finland 10.-30.8.2015. The installation uses a Kinect for Windows 2, NI mate V2 (using skeleton tracking) and the Blender game engine (using the official NI mate plugin for Blender). The graphics were done in 2D by graphic design studio Kilda of Helsinki.
