Nike Fuelband, winner of the Cyber Grand Prix at Cannes International Festival of Creativity, along with Curators of Sweden, is a Nike+ wrist strap device that tracks your daily activity using a common, universal metric called Fuel. The user experience was designed to ensure that active users are easily able to set goals and get from red to green. If you meet your goal, animations celebrate your performance. Hit a streak and Fuelie shows up to cheer you on. Data visualisations show where you were most active daily, weekly, monthly, and beyond. Bluetooth synch technology makes it possible to wirelessly sync the Fuel data to a range of platforms. “NikeFuel levels the playing field, and fits into your life”.
