I have for a long time wanted to have an app where I could visualize my EDC items in a inventory like in a roleplaying game (diablo, WoW, etc.)
It would be another dimension to carrying and collecting gear.
Perhaps there could be a way of ranking items in different categories and be used as a tool to rate how prepared you are for different situations.
I figure that this site would have people interested in and who would know how to create something like this.
Or am I the only one interested in gamifying my EDC?
Perhaps this app already exists?

I am not aware of such an app. It would be nice to have though. I do use an app for Knife collecting. Probably not what you are looking for though. The link is in my signature for the knife app.

Thank you for your response!
No it's not exactly what I have in mind, I want to have something more gamelike where I could add properties to items to represent their uniqueness or their affective value.
Like my hat for example, it has some useful preparedness properties:
It protects somewhat from rain, not as much as an umbrella so maybe it could have a "+2 rain protection" while a golf umbrella would have +10..
And I got it as a gift which makes it special for me because it also carries the memory of the friend I got it from.
In Diablo terms it would be a blue item with some add-on to the name of the item type, e.g. "Hat from Pipis".
A custom knife of a limited edition could be a unique item with +x in knife community respect.
And the visualization would show where on my person I carry my different pieces of kit. Like this:

It's a bit childish perhaps but I would enjoy it alot.
It would be a way to appreciate your gear more and perhaps a useful way of seeing what you lack in day to day preparedness.
