Willempje Vrins and Leonieke Verhoog on Figurerunning

July 4, 2011

Willempje Vrins and Leonieke Verhoog thought running was boring, and wanted to find a way to make it more beautiful and fun. They invented Figurerunning, and are building a community around it. With apps like Runkeeper, they run specific routes that make make shapes like hearts and soccer players. Then they share their drawings/runs on Facebook and ask people to guess what they are. Guess along with the audience at what their creative drawings represent! (Filmed at the Quantified Self Show&Tell meetup in Amsterdam at Mediamatic)
