Augmented Reality Gym Mirror

When you're working out at the gym, a mirror in front of you shows you a visualization of your future self - thinner, more muscular, generally in better shape than you currently are. This is such a compelling vision that it motivates people to exercise more to move towards matching it. It can start off being installed in high-end gyms, then filter down into Wii-like applications used at home.

Crowdsourced Citizen Science

A local parish uses a smartphone app to let their members collect air pollution data in their community. The app recommends whether it is safe for them to be outdoors and allows them to contribute this data to the parish pollution network for aggregate analysis and mapping of pollution in the parish. Once they find the most polluted spots, they can initiate clean-up and lobbying efforts to benefit their community.
