Life Is The RPG That Ends With You Die. So How About Earning Points And Tracking It?

Illustration for article titled Life Is The RPG That Ends With You Die. So How About Earning Points And Tracking It?

Okay, maybe life isn't the best role-playing game, but it's pretty damn important. And that's why San Francisco start-up GreenGoose created lifestyle platform to track it.

Packaged with a water bottle, toothbrush and a vitamin container, the GreenGoose logs how many times a week people, say, pick up their toothbrush, awarding them points each time they do.

There are sensors on the bottles and the toothbrush for tracking — as well as a credit-card sized pedometer — that can communicate with the GreenGoose base station that's attached to a broadband router.

The points that players earn are worth, well, nothing per se, other than hopefully a healthy body and clean teeth. And that is priceless.
