For the past many years I have been tracking my hydration. It's a tedious and repetitive task. By combining tracking hydration and gaming, the idea is to make it fun and easy for anyone to monitor their hydration, which is important to overall health.
For the prototype, we will save time and resources by building the game in Habitica, the open source habit tracker and community.
Players will have actions that let them track hydration, but also an indicator of they are feeling. By players voluntarily sharing this anonymous information, a data set can be built that shows how hydration affects health. This can then be further investigated by research scientists and medical professionals.
If the prototype is successful, the idea is to build this into a real open source app afterwards and give that to the world.
