GreenGoose – play real life for green April 11, 2011Posted by reto wettach in ecoviz, gadgets, gamification, innovative interfaces, making the invisible visible, physical interaction design.
In my research I came across GreenGoose, a company which offers sensors for real life gaming for a better lifestyle. The images below explain quite good, what they offer:
On their website they are calling game developers, however this link doesn’t work. So, I don’t know about the real life situation of this company… 🙂
However, I think that this is quite a radical approach to bring gamification into real life. We all know about the wii fit including a scale (they call it balance board, which might help). So, the GreenGoose concept is just going one step further. However, the nice thing about the Wii Fit concept is, that it is a little more indirect than just counting the number of times you drink… Some research needs to be done about whether a direct, obvious approach is better than a more playful, indirect approach!
