EdiPulse is gamified fitness that puts a tasty twist on workout rewards

EdiPulse could become a way to reward your next workout. It's a project that measures and tracks your heart rate and sends the data to a 3D chocolate printer, resulting in exercise-powered treats. The longer you keep the heart rate up, the larger your chocolate reward. Exertion Games Lab wanted to give a one-to-one physical object reward for the invisible data that wearable devices track.
