Watch Dan.

We were given the prompt to make some crAPPlications for our Graduate Research Techniques Class (Needfinding).  Here they are.


Prana Dating
Find people to date with similar Prana levels as you. Get deep with someone who’s on your level. Take your phone into yoga class, and fine classmates nearby who are just like you!


Day Changer
Worried about missing deadlines? Well this is the solution for you! Day Changer recognizes when you have free time and suggest things you could be doing so you stay busy. As deadlines approach, Day Changer pushes them up so you finish them earlier. Can’t remember when all that stuff was actually due? Doesn’t matter! Why? You’ll finish it earlier!


Gas Tank
Keeping track of your energy levels can be difficult. Why not let Gas Tank help! It’s just like that little gas light in your car, except when Gas Tank detects your energy levels are low it vibrates until you recharge.


What are you on?
Feeling good? Feeling great? Feeling fantastic? Choose from a list of things that you’re feeling and What Are You On will tell you what drugs you could be on to replicate what you’re feeling again later.
