To let different people communicate and share similar ideas together and work together on a smartphone app. Working together – by talking in the chat room, this will allow users to share their ideas as well as to gain more experience through communicating with different people. Also everyone can be inspired by each other to improve their original idea
Aimed mainly at 16-30 year olds who have aninterest with creating things, but anyone is also welcomed to take part
Any time – when they feel like sharing an idea or when an idea/ inspiration sparks
Everywhere,aimed at people who have a smartphone. This app will be advertise on social network sites/ schools /universities
How does it work
The user has to type in their details and the app will help them to find people with similar interests in order to group them together into a chat room. The more the users share ideas using the chat room, the more points they will gain. The more points the user collects, the higher chance they have of becoming a gold member.
1. Go on the app and type in details. Details will be : gender/ age(16-30) /year of experiences /subject (fashion design/product design / architecture/music/fine art/animation etc) /interest
2. The app will group users of the same/similar interests together
3. They are then given a few topics from different chat rooms from which they can join
4. There will be an admin* on each topic/subject to start the conversations off
5. The more the users chat, the more points they will gain and will be graded as the following members: gold/silver/bronze user.
6. These members will also be put into their own personal chat rooms, where gold members are in one chat room, silver in another and bronzer members will have their own chat room too
*Admin- who are they?
The admin will be someone who is well-known on a particular subject. For example, if it was product design we will ask Philippe Starck to start a topic for the users to talk about.
Users can also search and invite their friends to join in the chat room. However, 1 chat room will only allow 100 people, as the server may crash if there are too many people.
How the chat room takes place?
When a chat room is full, a red light is indicated - online(full)
When a chat room is not full, a green light is indicated - online(chat available)
There is also a hot topic ratings chart that will update each week. Also by clicking on the hot topic, you will get a summarize of what the hot topic is about
3 points – when the user enters to a chat room
5 points – when the user uploads interesting news/pictures
5 points – when the users invite friends to the app
10 points – when the user stays and communicates with other users for an hour
People can also give points out to other users for uploading creative pictures/news
** However, if the users don’t use the app for more than 2 weeks, X points will be deducted
Gold membership –to be a gold member, the user has to gain at least 10000 points.
What are the benefits of being a gold member? The users will get a chance to be involved in something related to their interest (this may be to design something/be part of a design show/helping out with companies
This will bean interesting app for communication and inspiring like-minded people through the chat rooms and uploads of news/pictures/ideas. It would also be interesting to watch how the groups merge and collaborate to form bigger groups any maybe even to form friendships and meet ups.
