A watch + app which gives the user a creative task to do daily , weekly or monthly (depending on how the settings are adjusted). The creative tasks are decided through a questionnaire which gives you a creative score based on your age/backround etc.

Petrit commented on Low Cost Life Hacks Book

Thanks for your helpful suggestion Naomi, I'm suprised creating characters did not come across our minds even though our idea is so heavily inspired by the grimm brothers book. This is why collaboration is so important, one person might see things differently to someone else.

Thank you for your encouraging words Omar and sorry for my late reply. We are happy to hear you are as passionate about our idea as we are. Yes your right, the best people to guide others are the locals who are the most knowledgeable and have the most experience when it comes to life hacks.This is why we did not find it befitting to make a book telling them how to use the resources around them (when they have been doing that their whole lives). And this is what inspired us to include the Brothers Grimm element within our idea. With that being said we could contribute some knowledge which may not be known to the locals and which has originated from other places around the globe but could still benefit them.

such as:

thank you for the helpful link Guy and sorry for my late reply. We have already made some prototypes and will look to develop these further by implementing some of the open ideo tips you sent us. Wow! I didn't know there were so many different ways to prototype and that there is so much depth to feedback. We need to get cracking! One statement I particularly agreed with was - "The most important ingredient in a feedback conversation is honesty: people may feel
shy about telling you what they really think of your idea if they know that you are very invested in it." This is one good thing we do at Middlesex, everyone scatters around the room writing other groups feedback anonymously on post it notes and sticking it on their ideas, this way everyone feels more confident and can be more honest.
