Social city fitness gardens. #oipd

Istanboel outdoor exercisingCity fitness gardens are playgrounds for adults and the elderly where they can exercise (partly) in open air. The idea is to have these close to retirement homes, places where old people live and can come together, a bit like small football fields, outdoor kindergardens, etc. It is all paid for by the government as it increases both the health of its citizens and plays an important (social) role in bringing people together to these meeting places.

GPS bracelets, app and games. #oipd

GPS bracelets help you find back your (small) children when on holiday or going somewhere crowded. You give a child a GPS bracelet and an app on your smartphone tells you where they are. It can also be used to track people who sleepwalk on dementing people that escape from a retirement home. Or in schools, when young kids go on an outing, the guiding teachers are more counting than enjoying the outing.

Basically GPS Bracelets make sure your loved ones never get lost anymore.

GPS bracelets; and you never get lost again.

In schools for instance; You can program the app that if someone is out-of-range of, let’s say, 25m an alarm goes off. Or if two people have the app (first and last in the cue) it says when someone is more than 5m out of the cue.

The GPS bracelets can also be used in custom GPS games for adult. 

The hardware part can be ordered in bulk, programmed and personalized via NFC and the smartphone app. Extra entertainment and games is payable. There will also be a Google Glass and iWatch app with the same functionality as the GPS bracelet.

Thanks Sam Hermans for inspiring me on this idea.
