A Self-Tracking Shopping Assistant
This project presumes physical store locations featuring bluetooth sensors (such as this system). Grocery List (blue) and recommended items (green) are globally mapped in the store. This product provides the opportunity to see items in an individual aisle; what the Town Fare Assistant does is automatically tracks and orients items to the user’s immediate proximity. Items can be manually checked off or swiped out of view as the user goes along.
Surf Easier: A Quick View Mode
The general understanding for a collaborative web platform is that 90% of users are "lurkers" — meaning that they only browse content. In that context, focusing on how to make viewing content as quick and easy as possible makes for a better user experience. I propose a quick view mode, enabled by a tap-and-hold gesture. Users can remain on the vertical content feed and quickly dip into content of interest to them.
