DELHI, India–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The World Health Organization recommends 60 minutes of exercise a day, but 80% of children do not achieve this goal. To help families, schools and after-school time programs solve this problem in today’s tech-driven world, health and fitness company GOFA International has launched Luca & Friends, a revolutionary new app that uses AI (artificial intelligence) supported motion capture technology to get kids moving through fun and immersive educational games.
