Great idea! I love how you noted that your program is "replicable with any population", making a program like this self sustaining is very important! This ensures that other people from all part of the world can take the model you created and build and customize it for their needs. Your idea can spread faster and effectively, making it invaluable for education. Great job Sara and Katie!

Yay! I'm glad you like the idea. I think the direction you are going is good! Just like OpenIdeo has local MeetUps, I think you could do something similar to that. At first assumed that you could program the wrist band to change colors as people used it more, but since it changes colors based on sweat, I guess the assumption would fall through. Maybe you guys can have a companion app, where people keep updating all their workouts and activities - when they collect a certain number of points for working out they can them level up to a new color band. You guys could have MeetUps where people have to pass a level - much like you would have to do in Taekwondo - and then you get the next color band. Thanks for your reply! I think you guys are doing greats things!

I think this is pretty amazing! I would love to use something like that. I think it would be cool to add levels to the colors, like in Taekwondo, each color symbolizes a level of achievement. This way people would be motivated to workout to increase their color level.
