Educators, World and Olympic Medalists develop SwiMMinD, a personal platform of educational modules that connects parents, coaches and swimmers in a fun, enjoyable way through automatic video analysis and gamified augmented reality. They also develop the first ever direct assessment of  personal exposure to water and air pollution.

Our lives are intertwined with digital media and it is difficult to define how long a person should be in front of a computer or mobile phone screen. Obesity and diabetes continue to grow in alarming rates. Research reveals that children consume between 3 to 6 hours of media in a typical day. This includes using computers, cell phones and tablets for games, music and reading. People tend to exercise less and for those that exercise are exposed to recreational illnesses (polluted air and water). That is why we’re creating SwiMMinD, a platform with powerful modules that inspire children and adults to swim while keeping them away from polluted water and air.

Analysis

This module delivers remote, interactive and meaningful feedback through video analysis and digital certificates to swimmers at any age and level.

Our Analysis can be used online, meaning you can input straight into the system anywhere you may be –  uploading video evidence as you go! Simply upload your video into the system, using any device you chose and then you will receive a meaningful video analysis, including causes for concern and feedback that assist your improvement.

There are three Sub-modules of analysis:

The first two Sub-modules are based on well established Programs from Australia, Germany, the UK and US. The “Flexible Program” could be individually tailor-made for each individual, club, school.

Our Analysis System:

  • Supports individual progress;
  • Uses a range of analysis tools to capture and record progress;
  • Uses technology to track attainment of Certificates, progress.

We launched our analysis with Programs and their relevant levels within SwiMMinD Learn to Swim module so that users can work alongside well established standards. Within our Programs framework there are milestones based on which users could receive meaningful feedback and upon passing those certificates, users receive Certificates.

At the same time our analysis system can be bespoke for any individual, establishment (club or school) and can adress alternative analysis approach.

Alive

Get ready for Megalodons, Mermaids, Dolphins, Whales, Seahorses, Turtles, Sirens, Neptun, Kraken, Torpedoes, Submarines etc.

In a Pokémon Go style SwiMMinD releases fairy and scary sea creatures at local swimming pools across the globe!

They’re ALIVE in your swimming pools!

SwiMMinD Alive will connect you to fairy and scary creatures through Augmented Reality and wearable devices, your mobile phone. Sharks can sense when someone does not go to practice as they sense blood. Mermaids can help you find hidden treasures. Dolphins or torpedoes could show you how to swim faster! They fled the oceans, seas, rivers to come to live at your local pool!

SwiMMinD Alive also develops a breakthrough innovation, direct assessment of personal exposure to water pollution and air pollution. This way, SwiMMinD is not only a fun platform to learn to swim but it helps counter climate change as it targets recreational water illnesses. In other words, besides developing an Augmented Reality System for motivating people how to swim, SwiMMinD’s team will engage in activities with leading developers of wearable devices or develop on its own a device that could check the temperature of the water and air, the levels of chlorine in the air and the water, the pH of the water.

As a SwiMMinD user, your mission is to learn to swim and race globally without leaving your local pool or local basin (river, sea, pond, ocean). Explore the opportunities how to achieve your mission and activate augmented reality (AR) to interact with these unbelievable fairy and scary water creatures. If the water you enter is polluted the wearable device you carry will blink red. Also, if the air you breath has too much chlorine your wearable device will also blink red.

Invite friends to join your team to discover car-sized pearl in a giant and wise shell! Rate your teammates and coach to reach faster a battle scene with other teams where the Kraken swallows the ones that lack persistence. Listen to your coach and your AI Assistant (Shark, Dolphin, Torpedo, Goldfish) and a beautiful mermaid could help you steal the magical tripod of the god of water, Neptune which will give you some special powers. Another approach if the mermaid helps you find an speak with Neptune who could reveal to you one of the most treasured secrets in the water world.

Pass Learn to Swim Levels, Participate at Remote Racing Games, Attend Practices, Listen to your AI Assistant and Coach, Rate your Team, Teammates and Coach in order to level up or gain access to shells and coins which give you access to perks such as placing your own logo, your own avatar or the opportunity to get secrets not only from the god of the water, Neptune but from World and Olympic Champions.

LEARN TO SWIM and RACE GLOBALLY with fairy and scary creatures.

CHECK whether the water at the pool, lake, sea, ocean is polluted.

ASSESS whether the air which you breath is polluted, for instance a ventilation system in a pool does not work and there is much chlorine in the air.

AWARD your efforts and persistence.

BATTLE against teams where judges are sea monsters such as MEGALODON or KRAKEN

ENLIGHTEN yourself by meeting and listening to the god of water, Neptune or World or Olympic Champions

EMBRACE your personal AI Assistant (Seahorse, Dolphin, Shark…) and Coach who guide you through the world of unknown to learn a lot, to meet people with similar interest and enjoy the process of learning.

SwiMMinD’s “Alive” Module is currently being developed.

SwiMMinD Games

The beta version of SwiMMinD Games system qualifies and awards swimmers interested to compete globally without leaving their local pools, remotely. 

Anyone could compete, no matter the age, gender or nationality. There are age groups starting from 7&Under to 120 years of age (click to see groups). The guiding registration principle is based on nationality, not on location. Basically, each country shall have a bespoke division which becomes the norm. Hence, if a user is a permanent resident of York, United Kingdom he could still make a video race while visiting friends or relatives in Bloomington, Indiana, US.

Every year, hundreds of thousands, even millions of swimmers could come together to compete in the worldwide, global online/remote competition, the SwiMMinD GAMES. We plan, the best swimmers from all age groups to be invited to a three day live competition where will be decided who is the fastest swimmer in the universe for each event. The execution of the live event will depend on this beta version. 

Lets make SwiMMinD GAMES truly a race of the universe by entering into the race by registering. Since it is beta, it is FREE to use.

SwiMMinD will assess your races and rank you based on your gender, age and nationality. The rankings will be updated regularly.

STAGES

Stage 1 – Nationals (until 30.06.2019)

Each country represents a virtual, remote racing arena. The Nationals Stage has the biggest duration because we want to give many opportunities to any level swimmers. Thus, a swimmer from developing countries will have a great motivation to be one of the best in its own country.

At the end of the Nationals period, 30 June 2019, the best 100 swimmers per event shall advance to the next stage of competition, the Regionals. For instance, on 50 m. Freestyle, the first 100 people will qualify for the Regionals.

The rankings for different age groups and gender a placed placed separately.

Stage 2 – Regionals (01.07.2019 – 30.11.2019)

The Race continues but this time on the Regional level. The Competing regions are as follows:

  •  United States of America and Canada.
  • Europe and Australia.
  • Latin America, Asia and Africa.

National identity stays throughout the competition. Hence, if during the Nationals a German wins the 50 m. Freestyle, during the Regionals (combining Europe and Australia) he will still compete as German.

At the end of the Regionals period, 30 November 2019, the best 10 swimmers per event shall advance to the next stage of competition, the Global Race. For instance, on 50 m. Freestyle, the first 10 people will qualify for the Global Race.
