Ever wondered how emotions (about places) change over time and vary in different locations? Or wondered how your friends are feeling at the moment?
Happit helps you express your feelings, share them with your friends and store them for later reference.
About the idea: Nima was keeping a feelings diary when he was a child and Sohail knows a lot about emoticons, so we created the web app Happit that allows users to enter and track their feelings; and us and businesses or the government to analyze emotions globally.
How does it work? The app allows you to self evaluate your emotions by rating 6 basic feelings on a scale from 0 to 1, whenever you want to express yourself like a diary or share it with others.
Based on your historic data you can navigate in time and see how surprise yourself by seeing how your feelings have changed throughout different times and events, or based on the places you have been to. You can also see your friend's happiness diary if it's shared with you or the public.
The data in anonymized form can also be used for enterprises or law makers to improve general well-being, e.g. if people in one neighborhood are particularly unhappy, government could invest more into parks, facilities etc in that area or restaurants can learn that people are particularly happy on a specific day or event. This tool could even be used for peer study groups.
Our target user group are primarily the younger generation, i.e. college students. We are most proud of our visual interaction mapping of emotions.
