Our paper shows how the evolution of HCI devices progresses as a mobile learning tool. Mobile devices provide interesting applications for cognitive infocommunication. Our principal objective is to assist in developing educational games on these devices. Working with different educational institutes, we designed a flexible biofeedback-controlled self-rewarding framework. Several promising approaches and methods are proposed outside the box of educational games in this paper. The attention of players is regulated by changing rewards. We show both how educational games can be improved and how adaptive entertainment games may be developed in the near future.
