Innovation Pavilion (IP) has added an innovative spin-off company to its Denver South-based business ecosystem. Led by entrepreneurs Steve Lopez and Eesha Sheikh, "Playpal" creates technological tools via smartphones and tablets that empowers adolescents to take control of their own health while doing what they already love, playing video games. Their ultimate mission is prevention and reversal of childhood obesity by utilizing technology to effect a behavioral change in an adolescent’s health. Recently, Playpal finished the digital gamification of O'Brien Park, which is part of the Town of Parker’s visionary plan to set the foundation for a successful and vibrant downtown. Parker residents benefit from an improved park experience thanks to one-of-a-kind connected technology. After a successful trial phase, Playpal and the Town of Parker are hosting a public launch of the project on May 6, 2017 at 1 p.m. in O'Brien Park.
