RiderState is a smartphone app for cyclists, that creates a geolocation social game that encourages riders to "conquer" as many streets and roads as possible – in their local area.
The app shows the world is divided up into "tiles", so the goal is for cyclists to dominate as much of the map as possible.
However, more that just a game, the motivation behind RiderState’a new app, is to promote cycling as an alternative form of transport.
“Mobility and pollution are a serious issue in many cities around the world. The Riderstate app is an initiative that aims to help solve or mitigate these problems by using gamification techniques as a way to promote the use of bikes in our society.”
The app keeps track of users’ progress via "global leader boards", and awards badges for their accomplishments. As a result, cyclists can compete individually, or form allegiances with other groups of cyclists in their area.
RiderState divides the world into 10,000m2 zones, each representing a territory waiting to be conquered.
The app also provides cyclists with their real-time location, when their riding.
