This app was inspired by a student at the university with a moderate traumatic brain injury. Common repercussions of less severe traumatic brain injuries are short term memory loss, trouble focusing, and difficulty organizing and prioritizing day to day life. Currently, he keeps track of his schedule by writing individual activities and events on a collection of Post It notes that he saves in his pocket, and plays goal-oriented puzzle games like Tetris and PacMan every day to help him stay focused and bring him back to what he needs to do. We are working on an app that combines task management and Tetris in an effort to make day to day scheduling a little less frustrating and a little more fun.
What it does
When a user adds a task, they input simple reminder information and simultaneously create a randomized Tetris block that they can manipulate to fall and collect at the bottom of their screen. The user can then play Tetris, but the task blocks they have made remain static at the bottom, putting them at a disadvantage if they haven't completed much for that day.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a complete and effective design for the app, and we were able to make a randomized Tetris block appear every time a task was created in the web app.
What we learned
What's next for blox
We are going to continue working on this app, with the ultimate goal of getting it onto the app store for both iOS and android.
