City 365: your pocket going ou...

Scenario: a city filled with college students, with a generous variety of places to go out, yet the tables are empty on an average evening. Problem? Not enough pocket-to-table pairing! In Romania, nearly 8000 students are coming each year to Cluj county, yet somehow the places with the best offers aren’t visited by the ones who could best benefit from them. City 365 is an app that encourages students who live on a budget to make the most of their time and go out more often. The team behind the app says it’s an everyday app for going out, and could become the pocket best friend for both users and venues. How is City 365 different from other going-out apps? It shows all the offers in town, providing navigation even in lack of a 3G/Wifi connection, which means it also works offline. These days we are all flooded by promotions and offers, but the digitalization of venues exploring can give us a way to better filter all these offers to find the ones that are the most compatible with our preferences and budget. An app like City 365 can help anyone receive tailored recommendations, thus filtering the information overflow and helping both users and venue owners have improved experiences.

Exciting times! On April 29that TechHub, the Innovation Labs IoT teams showcased the progress on their ideas in front of mentors, investors and partners in order to get valuable feedback that could help them make the difference between products that “were almost there” and products that managed to “hit the spot”. After getting the impressions of the audience, they now have less than 4 weeks to prepare for DemoDay, where the decisive presentations will take place. Here’s the ideas and projects that evolve during the first month of Innovation Labs: Eskimo is a solution that helps advanced skiers lessen their chances of accident during slope descends. Even though skiers think they are too good to make risky moves on the slope, that’s not true. The biggest issue skiers face is putting too much stress on their knee joints and this is where Eskimo steps in. Eskimo knee brace aims to improve skiers’ experience and technique while giving them feedback on their performance directly on their smartphones. Being the first wearable for monitoring and improving ski stances, they are targeting advanced skiers in order to prevent them from hurting their knees. Parkme is all about not wasting time and patience while looking for a parking spot. The solution aims to decrease traffic and wasted resources while helping drivers and service owners alike. By using the service, the drivers will be able to find the closest parking spot, do reservations and handle ticketing. Service owners will be able to take care of […]
