Inspiration: I participated at last year`s dementHack and was touched by the wandering problem. I decided to take advantage of smart-watches to come up with a solution
What it does: The watch shares GPS data with the caregiver through a web app and can receive text and phone calls as it has its own GSM chip.
How I built it: Ruby on Rail for the web app and Tizen-sdk for the smartwatch
Challenges I ran into: Tizen-sdk was not straight forward to use and documentation is not huge... Also google maps to manipulate data and compare coordinates.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of: On the rails side, I was able to set google maps that could set perimeters around addresses and then see if the watch wearer is outside of that perimeter.
What I learned: got more comfortable with google maps
What's next for careMly: I would love to commercialize it as the other comparable product are more expensive and offer less functions.
