Onefeat is a social game that rewards users for performing and photographing specific offline activities.
Much the way GreenGoose turns everyday activities into a game through its dedicated sensors, we recently came across another platform based on a similar principle. French Onefeat is a social game that rewards users for performing and photographing specific offline activities. Users of Onefeat begin by signing up via Facebook, Twitter or their email account. They then browse the site for a “mission,” or challenge. Thousands are currently listed — “ride a roller coaster,” “visit your grandma” or “find the best Happy Birthday cake,” for example — or users can create their own. Either way, to win the points assigned to the challenge, they perform the task in question and take a photo to prove it — a free iPhone app is available to facilitate that. Once the photo is uploaded, users earn points and trophies based upon the number of users who like their photo, allowing them eventually to progress on to the next level of the game. Paris-based Onefeat has already attracted users from Brazil, France and the US, it says, and it’s on the verge of launching internationally. Game mechanics have already shown their potential to motivate users when it comes to exercise, money saving and healthy eating. How could they work for you?
