Physical FourSquare Badges

FourSquare just launched an online store where you can buy t-shirts, stickers and almighty badges. I can understand the motivation to accumulate badges (sort of like a latent Girl Scout thing); it's cool to get rewarded for just showing-up. But will people actually start crowning themselves in the physical world, wearing badges on jackets and bags? Not sure, but looking forward to finding out.

According to the Foursquare team, those online badges might be linked to the real-life ones soon, unlocking accomplishments and so on. [...] Users can also vote for which design they’d like to see out in the store, so they’ve got that ‘social’ element covered. Via Taxi.
