The Toothbrush Achievement

So I was thinking about what [Jesse Schell was saying in his DICE presentation] while brushing my teeth this morning.  About 90% of the way through the presentation he makes the point that eventually all of our devices will start giving us points and achievements.  Driving to work and getting there on time will earn us points, brushing our teeth for the recommended 3 minutes will give us points.

Well… I looked down at my toothbrush this morning and noticed something I had forgotten about.  My toothbrush already rewards me when I brush my teeth for the recommended 3 minutes. I’ll admit, it kind of frightens me.
