Beat Your Mouse Movement aka BYMM

BYMM strives to balance the growing hours spent in front of computer screens by offering a playful solution that motivates people to walk in order to get more exercise and become more conscious about their health and city environment. It consists of two gadgets. One of them is a web/desktop application that tracks use of a mouse, while the other one counts steps. Individuals can playfully compete between their online and IRL selves, and win by walking more than mousing.
