Novusport is the ultimate gamification of sports activities: a social media game that promotes global sports participation. By combining the excitement of live competition with the power of social media, Novusport redefines the weekend warrior. By engaging people and motivating them to play real sports while using their mobile devices the player is the game.
Capitalizing on the skyrocketing success of amateur communal sporting events like Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, Spartan Race and dozens of others, Novusport’s “Weekend Olympiads” pit participants against each other across a broad array of sports activities. The festival atmosphere of these events promotes a deep, lasting commitment to the application. Unlike other event formats, Novusport’s technology encourages the community to continue to grow after the events end. Participants can challenge each other anytime and anywhere; across the field or across the globe, creating the ultimate bragging rights system in the social media sports world.
Spanning 20 sports and 145 predefined activities (ActivRs) ranging from dart throwing to swimming, Novusport entices people to compete in new sports regardless of skill level. The power of video establishes the authenticity and validity of our weekend warriors’ accomplishments. Now the Average Joe is able to experience those exciting moments when he succeeds or suffers the agony of defeat on any personal computer or mobile device. Novusport athletes can enjoy and laugh about their recorded activities and share them with the people in their lives. Each activity you perform leaves a permanent visual record of every achievement.
Novusport’s proprietary algorithm measures each athletes’ data and compares it to established world records within the same sport to create fantasy sports league style statistics for each participant. This patent-pending algorithm builds a unique Sports Graph for each of our athletes so that they can compare against friends, neighbors or anybody else around the world.
Novusport artfully blends sports participation with cutting edge technology in an innovative model that reaches tens of millions of people around the globe, incentivizing them to be active by bridging the gap between electronic devices and physical sports activities. The thrill of physical competition, the allure of recognition and pure human vanity fed by seeing yourself in action and sharing that with others all conspire to compel ever increasing participation in Novusport in ways that are unavailable through other means.
