There's a very popular phone app for cyclists which uses GPS data to
calculate your speed over various pre-defined road segments. For
added fun you get rewarded with "achievements" based on your
performance relative to yourself and your peers. So for example on
returning from a ride I might be
congratulated with a top-ten time
during my ascent of Hill X (or not). I'd like to see this principle
extended to more mundane non-cycling things to add a bit of
competition to everyday life. Example achievements might be:
"Congratulations! You visited Aldi more times this month than all
"You've completed a sea-level ascent of Everest this year without
"Your average speed for the month of January was 1.41mph. Your
average velocity vector was 0.00mph."
"You've just completed another lap of the M25!"
"Congratulations! You didn't visit Scotland in 2015!"
