chromaroma #gamelayer

Even the most mundane of tasks or experiences becomes more interesting with the addition of a game layer.

In this case it's the London Transport Oyster card that's the key.

'Chromaroma takes your travel data and makes it into a game where every journey counts in a competition for the city.'

A bit like Foursquare on steroids.

I also like the philosophy of creators Mudlark;
'...building ways to create entertaining games from the data we create and leave behind without noticing.'


In Melbourne we have the Myki travel pass.
There's actually little reason for daily commuters to purchase a Myki over a regular season ticket. In fact it's more useful for occasional travellers.
Over to you Metlink.

HT and finders fee to our man Mark Gretton.
