Show Off Your Foursquare Badges in Real-Life
By Foursquare / IO, 10 Aug 2010
Get those Mayor badges off your iPhone screen and onto your real life person. Foursquare has just launched a store where you can pick up t-shirts, stickers and those coveted badges.
They’re just for fun now, but according to the Foursquare team, those online badges might be linked to the real-life ones soon, unlocking accomplishments and so on.
It’s not a new concept—linking an online game to real-life merchandise—but Foursquare might be able to give it that location twist by rewarding rare badges with exclusive items, incentivizing more users to check-in.
Users can also vote for which design they’d like to see out in the store, so they’ve got that ‘social’ element covered. Right now, that Mayor badge looks especially enticing.
If you have other interesting design and art finds, cool websites, or anything that might catch our eye, share it with us at news -at- hillscreativearts -dot- com!
