In our research for the Future Of Gaming report, the PSFK consulting team noticed that one motivation driving in-game participation was Peer-Pressure. One example of this mechanic is the Changers Solar Starter Kit– a solar charging system for personal electronics that broadcasts a user’s ecological savings across their social networks, adding a level of transparency that allows fellow users to pressure one another into reducing their CO2 footprint. Users upload their social media profiles to the platform and through Twitter, the device ‘tweets’ the amount of energy the individual is saving while using the solar charger. Individuals using the device frequently can keep track of the amount of energy they have saved and encourage members of their social networks to consider doing the same, as the system also provides the incentive of ‘changer credits’ which can be redeemed for rewards and deals.
