Playthirst / Drinking bottle

Playthirst
Playthirst

Playthirst is a combination between game and drinking bottle. The game is nurturing a virtual pet by giving it adequate drink regularly. Playthirst is equipped with a scale and timer. The scale will regularly measure the mass of the water inside and compare it with previous recorded weight. If there is a change in the water weight (i.e. the user drinks the water), the timer will start to count. After the timer reached specified time, the pet will start to display thirsty expression. If the user drinks the water, thus change the weight of water inside, the timer wil reset. Change in the water weight will be recorded as daily water consumption.
