This offshoot of the Mixed Reality Virtual Pets and Haptic Foods projects focused on healthy eating. Children at a local summer camp were provided RFID systems, and camp counselors tracked fruit and vegetable consumption via an app. This directly influenced the health of a virtual pet, which could be examined using a haptic joystick (novint falcon).
