Ideation Phase of our Project



The objective of this group is to develop an interactive application for the public space. Our focus is an application on fashion, which will make it easier for people to experience and discover in the public space. Specific objectives include:

  1. quick decision support for choosing clothes
  2. quick price comparisons
  3. efficient utilization of time in public space
