GreenGoose Gets U Healthier
Can small sensors tracking your teeth-brushing, water drinking and exercise habits get you in better shape? A new company that popped up, GreenGoose lets you set lifestyle goals then track your own progress automatically with sensors on your toothbrush or waterbottle or a credit card sized pedometer (presumably a small accelerometer). With an open slot on your router, and for less than $25.00 you can get busy monitoring and "gamifying" your life.
Make sure you check out the GDC 'SGS Gamification Day' Debate, Lectures. On deck for the debate is GFH Guru Ben Sawyer and other game luminaries Jesse Schell, Jane McGonigal, and Noah Falstein.
