Final presentation



Final 3 ideas

Our final 3 ideas are:

1. Frenemies – Social Web application for avoiding/meeting peoples at a certain event

2. QRPlaces – Augumented Reality project combined with social networks – The user will get his current location through GPS and can search for a specific place or by categories (Hotels, Shops etc.)

3. Social Speed – Social Web application for suggesting talking subjects for two persons that don’t know each other.

We have mentioned before 2 of the 3 ideas so we will post here the sketches for CRPlaces project. We will come back with some user-friendly new sketches but until then we will have some exams @Faculty of Computer Science.


Social Speed – final idea for HCI project

Because we want a larger range of users, our Frenemies app will remain one of the 3 ideas that we will sketch for the first evaluation of the HCI project. We will implement the new baby-project: Social Speed.

Social Speed’s purpose is to facilitate social interaction between persons that don’t know each other. Let’s imagine a place with 20 people willing to socialize with others. They can set up their gender interests and, based on the social networks accounts, users are connected with someone and they can have a quick social conversation based on a subject suggested by the app. When the talking time elapses, they are asked if they enjoyed the company. By shaking the phone up-down they can answer Yes and by shaking the phone left-right they can answer No. They can continue with another social round an meanwhile can contact the discussion partner via social networks.

Here are some preliminary sketches:

All the team sketches can also be found in our Picasa Album.

We will come back with some user-friendly sketches but we showed the first drawings as well because we want to share every progress.

We are officialy changing our description from  “4 Computer Science students working on solving some chalenges in web page manipulation and online media control through tablet multigestures.” into”‘4 Computer Science students working on solving some chalenges in Web app interactions via smartphones and tablets.”  And also from “Using tablet’s multigesture feature @ Mozilla Student Outreach 2011” into “Using smartphones to interact with Web apps @ Mozilla Student Outreach 2011”
