[ ] (pronounced as “tchk tchk”)

[ ] (pronounced as “tchk tchk”) is a wearable gaming console that is all about having active fun; with a healthier lifestyle as a pleasant side effect.

Pronounced as “tchk tchk”, [ ] is a device that transforms any sport tool (e.g. basketball shoe, tennis racquet, hockey stick) into a game-controller for an audio-enabled sport/game. You can connect [ ] onto your sport tool in different ways (wristband, clip-on, sticker), and it transforms, for example, playing basketball into a gaming experience; with different levels and sound-rewards that only trigger when the user is above their personal sporting best. The resulting reward tells the other players that the user of [ ] is doing very well in the sport at that moment, which in turn opens up the social dialogue and social rewards.
