Active.com API health app.


The challenge was to create an app that promotes a healthier lifestyle using the active.com API.


As the UX designer on a 24 hour hackathon team, I helped create an iPhone app that rewards gamers who participate in active.com events with increased gaming power.


The working iPhone prototype led the gamer on a journey in two parallel worlds, the world of the knights game and the real world of participating in active.com events. The app was designed to be extended to work with wearable devices too.
