Unkore, an app utilizing poop and beatiful girls to help with early detection of colorectal cancers

2019 INNO-vation Disruptive Challenger

 

 

Currently, the three largest causes of death are cancer, stroke, and heart disease, which are all influenced by daily lifestyle habits. One of the biggest issues with lifestyle-related diseases are, 1. the difficulty of finding symptons, & 2. even if treatment has begun, it could be interrupted due to poor symptom detection. This research aims to make use of entertainment, such as games, in combination with sensory devices to cast a wide net of support in acquisition and maintance of behavioural change in healthy living. With this proposal, we developed a range of games such as "Unkore," a game that requires daily input of defecation information to help give a rewarding experience for those who find it uncomfortable to consult a physician directly.
