Whether or not people want to face it, weíve got a serious obesity problem in the states. Lay blame to parents, video games,† fast food or what have you, but the motivation to do physical exercise just isnít there anymore.
Thatís why GeoPalz has created a pedometer that can measure your footsteps for up to 21 days. This is a rather large undertaking as a program, but they intend to let itís wearers build up points by how many steps theyíve taken, and win prizes through cashing in points. By creating a GeoPalz account, and buying the pedometer for about $25, you can start in on the program and start working towards anything from a Frisbee to a new bike. There is likely a lot of ways you can cheat this system, but it is definitely a hopeful venture, which will get the attention of some at least. This isnít going to start a revolution of any kind, but it will affect some kids, and thatís all that matters.
