Middletown, NJ (PRWEB) July 23, 2013
Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno, the honored guest speaker, congratulated the companies on their accomplishments and thanked them for the contributions they are making to New Jersey’s economy. “The success of our economy, not just in New Jersey, but in the United States, is right here in this room,” Guadagno said. “The ability to be innovative, and creative, and to bring real jobs to New Jersey and to the United States, is how we’re going to turn this economy around.”
“We were pleased to share the successes of our incubator companies at the first annual awards event,” said Suzanne Zammit, president of NJBIN. “There are close to 500 early stage and startup companies located at our network of 15 incubators throughout New Jersey. Many new jobs will come from NJBIN incubator startup and early-stage companies. With our awards, we are recognizing the companies that are already making contributions to New Jersey’s economic growth.”
RKNet Studio was recognized for creating Cognitions Bridge, a suite of mobile apps for education, entertainment, brain fitness, and cognitive skills development. The developers bring decades of experience in technology, applied cognitive psychology, communications, and operator training systems for critical Nuclear Power Control Room environments.
“By stimulating brain with several simultaneous activities at any age, children as well as adults can increase their attention span, increase awareness to their surroundings, sharpen their memory, process information quickly, recall and organize their thoughts in a positive and productive manner… all the while playing a competitive game and having fun,” said Anant Goel, producer CEO, RKNet Studios.
Cognitions Bridge games are designed in the labs, but proven in real life. Cognitions Bridge is a suite of six mobile games for brain fitness and cognitive development that actually entertain, educate, and progressively challenge the user.
“In a game of ‘21 Bridge’ between an adult and a youth, for example,” said Goel, “The adult can take the fun opportunity to teach and mentor on the basis of shared interests and nurture the youth's memory skills, math skills, logical thinking and reasoning skills, decision making skills, risk taking and risk aversion skills, and social skills such as turn taking, graceful winning–or loosing–and being patient with other players."
The interactive and dynamic nature of the games, with their progressively increasing complexity, is not only challenging, but also has added benefit of cognitions development in a fun and playful setting. The game structure and the rules act as edutainment, brain fitness, and cognitive development program where sequences of challenges test a range of cognitive strengths and weaknesses of the players. The level of challenges and intensity increase as the game progresses; whereby the ability of the mind to remember, assimilate and process information quickly and accurately is enhanced.
The dynamic integration of multiple cognitive skills sets makes these games fun to play and more beneficial than the so called brain-training computer games. Computer games may make the computer smarter but not the user; because the computer is acting as a ‘brain crutch.’ It’s like revving your car engine in neutral, while sitting in your driveway, going nowhere. The current genre of computer brain-training games is very limited in their scope, focus on one cognitive skill at a time, and lack dynamic integration between cognitive skills.
Intelligence game 21 Bridge can be downloaded on tablets from Google PLAY Store or the Apple APP Store.
