I'm working on a school project and need to get some opinions.

Would you like it if you received small in game bonuses for fitness / being active?
There are so many activity monitors - fitbit, strata, nike+, etc. You could give a game permission to access your fitness data. It could see how consistent you are in exercising, if your improving, how you compare to others, etc.

Based on this data, you could receive in game bonuses. Maybe you run a tiny bit faster, have an extra life, or just get a unique costume.

You wouldn't have to be an all star athlete, just get outside and be active.

There is a lot of negativity towards gaming, so it could be good if games promoted some physical activity.

What do you guys think?
