Exersaur is a dinosaur avatar smartwatch and smartphone app that gains points as the user engages in physical activity. At certain point milestones, the Exersaur evolves from an egg, to a baby, to an adolescent, and finally to a fully-grown dinosaur at maturity. While active, the Exersaur runs on the screen, and points are displayed based on exercise intensity and duration. While sedentary, the Exersaur’s face is displayed, with the mood indicating the level of activity over the past day. The duration and intensity of exercise are determined by the device’s built-in accelerometer.
The online Exersaur World allows users to sign in to an interactive world where children can use their points earned through exercise to play buy items and customize their Exersaur avatar. Upon signing in, a map will be displayed allowing the user to navigate the Exersaur World, where they can visit stores to purchase clothes for their Exersaur, plant fruits and vegetables in their garden, and buy furniture for their Exersaur’s home.
Exersaur links the progress of a personalized dinosaur avatar to physical activity through both short-term rewards of points and avatar evolution milestones and long-term rewards of avatar ownership, development, and social competition in the Exersaur World. Our innovation builds on proven concepts demonstrated by Pokemon, Tamagotchi, and Neopets.
