JUMPIT received a Global Nomination.
There is a great deal of interest from national space agencies to go to the Moon and Mars. ESA wants to go to the Moon and establish a village there. NASA wants to go to Mars. Astronauts and Cosmonauts from all over the world are already living aboard the ISS. What can they do in their free time? It can’t be all about reading books or game play on computers. Think of new sports or games that could take into account the low gravity (e.g. a space lacrosse game, extreme basketball). What about real or virtual experiences involving the Apollo 11 landing site on the Moon? Or following the paths of Sojourner, Spirit or Curiosity on Mars using a form of cross-country skiing? Think of new ways for to astronauts to use their free time. To present your results develop an app that makes use of virtual reality tools.
By using Jumpit app, a user can compete with others from different parts of the World or the Planets. It uses the phone Sensor/ accelerometer and GPS to track your Activity /Jumps along with your Location. The idea behind this game is to keep it super simple and easy for everybody to challenge and compete each other by jumping higher or for more number of times by using your phone.
