Liked playing The Sims? Then you’re going to love real life, where you work all day long, pay bills, grow old and die!
OK, so that was a rather nihilistic deconstruction of our love of life and video games, but those looking to inject a little more fun into their everyday lives may want to check out GreenGoose sensors.
A health-conscious, lifestyle tracking platform, it makes use of sensors in specially built bottles and containers, a credit-card sized pedometer, and toothbrush to award the user points on an online scoreboard.
Think of it like Foursquare for teeth-brushing; it basically turns life into a role-playing game, designed to encourage users to engage in healthy living practices.
While GreenGoose points are currently worthless, the company are looking into reward partnerships with companies with which users can redeem their healthy-living with real prizes. It probably won’t be a box of Dunkin Donuts or McDonalds vouchers though.
