I don't know exactly, they're not telling us, but it has something to do with how much people move on average every day. I get about 5 subject hours for it, and it sure beats pushing buttons upon a signal like a conditioned monkey. :)

i am currently trying (and failing) to become a fidget, because that way i can burn more calories a day and eat kit kats to compensate. So far i have the compensation bit sorted out....

As I said, it's far easier than a lot of the other experiments... ;)

You could devise ways to spoil the experiment.. wear it in the gym, lend it to other people who go to the gym, drag it along behind you while in the car.. send it to another country..

I'm supposed to record things like that, i.e. "unusual" amounts of exercise. I *did* think about lending it to my mum for one of her mad-as-hell nightshifts, but well, I don't want to screw up the data on purpose.. After all, in a semester or two, I'll have to conduct such experiments myself, and I'll be just as desperate for subjects willing to play along... Better build up a bit of good experiment karma. ;)
