“Personal informatics…

“Personal informatics systems are interactive applications that support users in collecting personal information about various aspects of their life, behaviors, habits and thoughts. These systems help their users improve self-knowledge by providing a personal history and tools for its review or analysis. Self-knowledge has many benefits, such as fostering insight, increasing self-control, and promoting positive behaviors such as energy conservation.” (Li, Froehlich, Larsen, Grevent, Ramirez 2013)

These are the introducing words for this years CHI’s workshop on “Personal informatics in the wild: Hacking habits for health & happiness”. Our projects ideas show similarities to that approach and can be therefore seen as a relevant research area.
