Being alone sucks. We understand that seniors (not the school type) often feel isolated, yet don't always have access to the right technology to abate that. With Elder.ly, we are providing a clean, easy-to-use platform for the elderly to communicate, stay active, and have a little fun too.
What it does
A fun and simple video chat platform that carefully matches users in private chat rooms with messaging and audio/video capabilities
How we built it
HTML/CSS, Node, JS
Challenges we ran into
Video chat configuration, sockets
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We really like the UI, and the fact that the video and chat works.
What we learned
More about sockets, SimpleWebRTC, live messaging
What's next for elder.ly
Mind stimulating games to keep elderly minds active, AI suggestions for chats, autofill messages
