Connect'

Second place in the service design contest by La Poste, France. We addressed the issue of efficiency of certain parts of the bank system in France, like having to speak to your bank advisor for many operations. We proposed a video chat system with your bank advisor to resolve the problem of efficiency, but still keeping a human feel to it. More over, we integrated the current services of La Poste, Digiposte+, an electronic vault to keep all your personal documents digitized and safe as well as the Talk to Pay technology where the voice of the client is recognized to secure a payment.

Pong is a school project where we were asked to improve an application that aimed at bringing more customers to local stores. The concept was that the user would obtain points (pong) at the stores they visited and they could also pay with those points once you had enough. Beacons are used to alert the user that they are entering a store where pongs are available.

Traceur

Traceur is a school project where the goal was to create a pervasive game that would use an urban sport and where the user would discover the city of Nantes. Traceur is a game built around parkour. The users film themselves doing parkour on different spots in the city. The other users give them a mark based on the technic and the aesthetic of the video. The user with the most points on one spot is the champion of the spot. There is also a system of achievements in which you obtain badges for the actions you did in the game.
