Race Yourself: Will Google Glass Dominate In The Next Generation Of Fitness Apps?

15 October 2013

Most people agree that hands-free smart devices like Google Glass will play a crucial role in the next generation of personal-use technology, but it remains to be seen exactly how these high-tech devices will contribute to the user’s everyday life. Google Glass is not yet in the hands of consumers, but London-based Race Yourself is already developing an app that the company hopes will spark an “exercise revolution”.

Race Yourself focuses on the possibility that Google Glass can be used to turn exercise into a game. The company hopes to optimize the user’s exercise experience by allowing them to visualize past performance times and essentially race against themselves when wearing the glasses. The app would employ a form of augmented reality that is unique to Glass wearers. Race Yourself would allow you to race in real time against your former personal best—which would be extremely motivating for many runners. But the app would also integrate social features, which would allow you compete against friends.

Another cool aspect of Race Yourself is the company’s plan to integrate various mini-games to add variety and fun to the user’s typical workout. For instance, one game forces you to run away from augmented zombies—which is definitely a good reason to run faster. Race Yourself also plans to develop apps for cycling and other forms of exercise that track speed and acceleration.

Formerly known as GlassFit, Race Yourself has already raised an impressive £100,000, or around $140,000, from crowd funding alone in an effort to launch its revolutionary fitness app for Google Glass.

As Alex Foster, co-founder of Race Yourself, explains, “Exercise is incredibly good for you. Our goal is to make exercise incredibly addictive and enjoyable through augmented reality exercise experiences on, primarily, Google Glass.”
