Veibingo / CarBingo

Aims to end the boredom, by entertaining children in the car whist looking out the car window

“The best ideas are often the simplest! VeiBingo aims to end the boredom, by entertaining children in the car whist looking out the car window.”
A bingo app for the iPad. Kids are presented a board of items they can see outtide while the car is driving. The items can be signs, animals, forrest anything that you can see outside. When the kid see a cow she presses on the cow image on the board to mark it. When she gets 5 in a row she gets a Bingo !

The app idea itself is good and the team could have sold it on appstore.
But the real beauty of this app is the business model.
The creators of VeiBingo want the child to be rewarded when she has a Bingo. One of the rewards can be that she gets a ice cream at the nearest gasoline station.

If the child gets a Bingo the parent driving the car will have to stop at a gasoline station. I think that most of us can imagine what will happen if you have two kids in the car and one has gotten a free Bingo ice cream. The parent will have to buy the other child an ice cream to. And while at the gas station they might as well get gasoline or other products.
