Pedometer Feeds Virtual Pet With Every Step
The Wokamon is a new take on the Tamagotchi that turns workouts into food, energy and happiness for pet aliens.
Why do you work out? To feel good? Or to feed a one-eyed rainbow-colored alien? Now both are possible thanks to the Wokamon app by Noodum, a new style of pedometer that feeds a virtual pet with every step.
Users begin by choosing their own alien from a selection of weird and wonderful looking creatures that hatch from eggs. Then they begin to track their daily activity with a smartphone or by syncing the app to a fitness wearable such as UP by Jawbone, Fitbit, Ledongi or Moves. Wokamon monitors their every move and turns each step taken into nutrition, energy and happiness for their alien. As users progress they gain access to new levels and new pets, until they have a menagerie of virtual aliens relying on them for their daily meals.
