Things are looking up for gray gamers.
First there was the Wii, then there was Brain Age, and now this. A pilot program being tested by Allstate may result in over 50’s getting cheaper auto insurance for playing video games.
As reported by the Associated Press, Allstate’s InSight program will be tested among 50-75 year-olds in Pennsylvania:
The group’s accident rates will be compared to a control group of people who do not play the games. The games are not all specific to driving. They’re designed to reverse age-related cognitive decline and improve visual alertness.
For example, a game called "Jewel Diver" has players keep track of underwater jewels that pop up on the screen for a moment before they are hidden under fish swimming around.
