Find out more about how ZEQUS works for supporters.

Recent health statistics show that one out of three children in the UK are over-weight or obese by the end of primary school. The scenario is similar in the US and other parts of Europe. Health problems associated with being overweight or obese cost the NHS more than £5 billion every year.

Our first game EdEggs® can help improve children’s overall health by promoting physical activities such as walking outdoors and playing indoor challenges.

When we hit our milestone pledge, we will launch the first game, set in "NEW YOLK" town with 8 levels and 32 EdEggs® to unlock and collect: Ed, Em, Uncle Brian, Stu, Bernie, Ozzy, Lizzie, Cassie, Rexy, Steggy, Trixie, Lava, and many more. As children earn energy points by walking, they unlock buildings and characters as well as a series of comic strips narrating the EdEggs' adventures as they build up New Yolk after their daring escape from the evil farmer.

Our team

Dr Angel Salazar, CEO of AIDA Technology, has twenty years experience and postgraduate degrees in digital and health technologies. His wife Andrea Elizabeth has twenty years experience in the education sector; she advises on pedagogical content and storyline. Daniel advises on game user experience, contributes to game development, and drinking all the smoothies!!!

What we have been doing

AIDA Technology has been developing this app for the past twelve months to get children walking outdoors more. This involved working with local schools by testing our ideas in focus groups with schoolchildren. The feedback helped our team to focus on the areas that children are interested in. We attended the Techmix Digital Summer Camp event in London to promote the app where 500 local schoolchildren visited the EdEggs workshop. We received very positive feedback about the concept of fusing technology and health together. A lot of our time has also been spent attending networking events around the UK to build corporate support behind the app. AIDA Technology hopes to address this by getting as many children as possible to use the EdEggs® app.


Our pledge of £4,500 will help us cover the costs of app programming and character animation, and also create an initial user base for our app. Supporters get access to our beta app, and an inflatable ball or complimentary t-shirt with EdEggs® designs. Other rewards include adding your name to the Hall of Founders within the app, and even becoming a celebrity - find out below...

What we are planning to do next

We are working with a selected group of schools. Once we reach a 2000 user base by the end of July 2014, we will move to the next stage of marketing, and partner with social-responsible corporate sponsors.

Stretch Goals

We are planning a few more exciting features. When we reach £6,500, we will add an egg & spoon bonus game. When we reach £9,500, we will add a trump card bonus game based on the EdEggs characters. When we reach £16,500, we will add a secure online dashboard for parents to keep track of their child's progress. When we reach £18,500, we will translate the app into six European languages - EdEggs® go international! When we reach 28,500 we will create a unique theme song and eight short films based on the comic strips - EdEggs® go to Hollywood!

Please note that the app, bonus games and dash board will be completed by August 2014. Multi-language version by September 2014, and short films will be completed by December 2014.
