Reima

As the number of children suffering from childhood obesity continues to raise, Finnish clothing manufacturer Reima decided to help raise a healthier generation. ReimaGO® is an activity app fueled by kids. It’s a game, where the gameplay is played by being active in real life. It’s an interactive story unlocking new chapters from fun playes outside in the rain. It wakes up whenever kids start to move, and it can be used to track movement everywhere: at day care, at school, at activities and in free time. The final service will see light in the Autumn of 2016.
