Dig-Log is the first IoT device that encourages users to shovel snow by turning the grueling activity into a sport.
The process is simple. All you have to do is install Dig-Log onto your snow shovel and connect it with the accompanying smartphone app.
Dig-Log allows you to calculate the weight of snow removed and the amount of calories burned in doing so. By visualizing your activity, you can add snow shoveling to your fitness routine and even compete with your friends.
Additionally, Dig-Log logs information such as your location and time (taken to shovel snow). It can be used to play games linked to your location data.
By turning a tough task into a form of entertainment and sport, Dig-Log has the potential to motivate people to shovel snow, which can create a ripple effect in other areas such as increasing the number of disaster volunteers.
