|Army Rations :Are you up for the biscuit brown Challenge?|
|Granny Won a Marathon? Oh Yeah?|
Well you get the idea: people thrive on challenging and being challenged. That's why the connected world needs a social challenge app like Leap. This App for challenging friends is coming soon on iPod and later Android and we're very excited about it. It got us to thinking about some of the crazy challenges that we've heard our Army buddies do. Of course I can't share them all with you (sorry Osama, would have liked to mention that particular challenge, but Barrack said No!) So I'll just give you a taste, no pun intended. The Squaddie (Brit. Slang for soldier if you didn't know) challenges normally always involve large amounts of alcohol and sometimes grievous bodily harm, but many of the challenges seem to involve food for some reason. Hence the Picture of 'Biscuits Brown' up top-the legendary British Soldier ration biscuit, unpalatable to man or beast, think compressed sawdust with a hint of cardboard and you get the idea. Here's your first challenge then: The quickest I've seen a pack of five biscuit browns eaten is 1 minute forty seconds, the rules are that they are to be consumed by themselves , no sauce and certainly no water. Up for that challenge: Then prove it with a pic and submit to Leap otherwise it don't count.
Now what the upcoming beat your friends app , initially on iPhone and later in the year Android, has got going for it is a really dedicated and charismatic design team who are all up for some crazy challenges. Have a look at the Leap Blog to find what these guys have been up to in the name of research and inspiration.
