Greengoose was created with the intent to turn everyday things into opportunities to play. Using a variety of different types of sticker-based sensors, Greengoose allows you to creatively gamify everything in your life - from brushing your teeth to walking the dog.
Each sensor is programmed to detect actions such as getting exercise or watering your plants by using an internal accelerometer. Each sensor has a unique ID and transmits the data it collects to a USB basestation so you can monitor whatever real-life games you use Greengoose to create.
The Greengoose API lets developers register and configure sensors with accounts and other affiliations. You can also use this API to check the status of your devices or to view sensed actions by specific sensor, user account, or basestation.
Some tasks in life are so boring that they could never be fun, just don’t tell GreenGoose that. GreenGoose is a real life “gamification” company, using small sensors and accelerometers on stickers to track everyday behavior. The company will eventually sell sensors designed to track anything from how often you drink from a water bottle, to how far you can throw a Frisbee. An online account then uses the data collected from these sensors to calculate how often you perform these tasks. The idea is that this would add some fun to your life while helping you stay on top of chores like feeding your dog. The GreenGoose API allows you to pull data from the sensors into any custom application.
