A visit to an old age home to interact and learn about the life patterns of old people. The age group there was above 60. This gave us a good idea about how old people learn and use technologies, and their impacts in their daily lives.

Everybody who went for the visit put their views forward through sticky notes, and  analyzing patterns in the learning process and daily lifestyles of the old.

Had to select a theme out of many presented  before us. We specially connected with the idea of productivity. It was near this above placard where all the members met and decided to form a team.

Made a paper prototype of our App and presented it infront of the other teams and mentors in the track. Got reviews and tried refining it.

Various features like swipe, shake and tilt were created individually by forming teams inside the team. Some screenshots of the coding window are shown here. Eclipse and Android Studio were used to program our app.

Backend was created using Java in Eclipse and Android studio. Since all the team members were new to android development, we faced a lot of problem while trying to run the code initially. Finally we were able to figure it out after a lot of debugging and with help of mentors.

The backend and UI components that were created individually by members by forming groups inside the team were integrated together.

For the first time all the components of the app were working in unison.
