PS Vita Anti Boredom is an experiment which aims to reduce the collective level of boredom in the Nordic region. To do this you could use our new PS Vita, but we need more tips and tricks to really make the Nordic region a more fun place to live. That's why we want to gather videos from you which illustrate how a boring situation can turn into something funny.
As a user you can search for tips if you're bored, or help others avoid getting bored by uploading your own tips in the form of short videos. It can be old or new stuff – things you've done yourself or something you've seen, or something a friend has done. But remember that anyone featuring in the film must agree to you publishing it.
The PS Vita Anti Boredom experiment takes place in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland and is a national competition between the nations. The competition will show which country is the most active in the fight against boredom. The reduction in the level of boredom in each country will be measured in the number of videos spread and in how many people watch them. You can follow this development on the Anti Boredom barometre on the frontpage.
Each week will have a winner – whoever uploads the week's most viewed video wins a PS Vita.
When the competition ends we will choose a main winner in each country who gets the journey of their lifetime with an anti-boredom guarantee!
Everyone that shares a film with us will compete for the final prize regardless of whether your video is a weekly winner.
The experiment lasts for the duration of July. Weekly winners will be contacted on a running basis. Main prizewinners will be contacted during the first week of August!
Have a great, anti-boring summer!
