what can you do with Trailhead points?

I am sorry if this has been asked before, but I wonder what exactly can you do with Trailhead points? It doesn't appear to be useful for anything except a way to indicate you have completed a number of modules, but since its for self-learning anyway, I am not sure why it is necessary to have the points?

Hi James,

It's called Gamification and personally I love it but that may be my addictive personality. I've hit 30,000 points and 40 Badges and it makes me feel good!!! Linkedin is also useful but it's not always the correct badge that's displayed (normally but a few have gone wrong).

Go Trailhead you really do learn and the little Astro doll I picked up at the World Tour in Melbourne is loved by my 5 year old.

My boss is also impressed
