A concept I had in 2009 for a mobile device that calculates your greenhouse gas emissions.
What does it do?
Calculate greenhouse gas emissions based on user input. Total emissions are expressed as black balloons that fill the screen of the mobile device. The black balloon campaign was an initiative of Sustainability Victoria.
A portable app for mobile devices that allows user to assemble a learning sequence of Learning Objects.
What does it do?
Provides an interface between a repository of data(learning objects) and a trainer. Mobile view provides a proxy version of LO to reduce data usage. The sequence created by trainer can be annotated, tagged with metadata etc. The sequence can be shared with others!
BusBuddy was an exercise in developing a Flash-lite based bus timetable application for my Nokia N95. The concept for BusBuddy came about from my need for an accurate timetable for bus and train services I used in my daily travel to work.
What did it do?
BusBuddy provided discrete bus and train timetable data on demand.
So, what features did it have?
BusBuddy used web services to access bus and train timetable data. At the time, timetable data was only available as PDF. Downloaded PDFs were to be stored and browsed on the phone.
Concept sketch for a persistent location based ambient sound layer. The ambient sound layer will leverage location data (google maps, directions), photographs (Flickr, Twitpic etc), text (blog posts, wikipedia, annotation, comments via Twitter). The ambient sound layer is designed for mobile devices. Relationships between sound recordings can be created (For example, the same type of sound at different locations). Time specific recordings can also be located on the layer (For example, the sound of something last month, year or decade). So far the ambient sound layer is just a concept.
My exploration of how we learn and how we design and develop stuff that helps us learn.
