How about an "app" that will reward you for being active on your Ultrabook.


I want to write the Desktop-App - yes it is not finished yet - in VB or Javascript and let it run in the Background. It´s an Awarding System for being at the Ultrabook!

Points of Interest

Its a little Awardingsystem with 200++ Awards. This awards are saved (in a local File) they are there but you have to do the given Task to get the Award in the Rankinglist Online. So you can show your Friends what you already achieved.

The "Desktop-App" will "hook" your actions -

"User" pressed the "e"-Button ("e"-Counter +1) ~ ("e"-Counter = 105) ~ ("e"-Counter-Achievement at 500)
If the User now hits the "e"-Button another 395 times the PopUp "e"-ButtonHits 500 Achievement(+10 Points)
will show up.

Like in the newest PC-Games but in RealLife!!   

It will recognize your Activities with and on your Ultrabook.
So if you open one pdf more than 10 times - for example - a little Window will PopUp saying that you unlocked the Achievement. How you do this - force it with a little Programm or smash 4000 times the "e"-button in a row - is your Choice.

If you finally pressed all your Buttons on your Keyboard for example this PopUp will show up and you get your Points online: 

So what is the great Advantage of this "App"? 

 - Its a game! Its fun!! I mean Awards are cool anybody should have some!
 - Its a Challenge to get all the Achievements before the others get it.
 - Its a Competition !!

For the Ultrabook I will add some "Special"-Awards like:

- "Go through the Wall" (speed up to 100 km/h GPS Sensor) -> you can only achieve this if you sit in a car or a train and drive more than 100 km/h
- "Go out of your house" (GPS Sensor) -> you will achieve this if you set your house as a variable in the gps and leave it then with your ultrabook
- "100 Days of Night" (ambient light Sensor) -> you will get this if your AmbientLigthSensor was black for 100 Days - not in a row, each night adds more "black" to a counter that will count to 100 days.
- "Lets get to the South" (Compass and GPS)

and many more.

The awards can only get achieved if you have an Ultrabook~cause a Laptop has e. G. no GPS.  The great advantage of the Ultrabook is that you can make much more Awards that are not that easy to get.

There are endless Options and Awards~

It will be fun to test the new advantages of an Ultrabook with the new Sensors for this AwardingSystem. Greetings!
