EdiPulse could become a way to reward your next workout. It’s a project that measures and tracks your heart rate and sends the data to a 3D chocolate printer, resulting in exercise-powered treats. The longer you keep the heart rate up, the larger your chocolate reward. Exertion Games Lab wanted to give a one-to-one physical object reward for the invisible data that wearable devices track.
Exertion Games Lab gets the concept of gamification: the tendency of humans to engage more enthusiastically with a process that gives tangible rewards. The EdiPulse wristband applies this concept to fitness, in a way many people who struggle with weight and exercise can immediately appreciate.
