Monday Morning Gamification: The Didget

February 21, 2011

Here is a great example of gamifcation in action; the Didget:

DIDGET™ blood glucose meter from Bayer is the only meter that plugs into a Nintendo DS or DS™ Lite gaming system to reward kids for consistent testing.

The Didget

 
Simple and elegant application of gaming ideas – reward the child for performing the essential (non gaming) blood tests that they need to do to stay healthy. By doing the right tests at the right time, the child gets points added to the Didget – and by plugging it into their Nintendo DS, they can unlock special rewards in a game.
