Karma provides a platform for posting and completing different errands around campus. By leveraging the power of the already built CMU community, Karma allows different services and knowledge to be shared across campus
Let's say that you're studying hard in hunt library but you really want some coffee and a muffin from LaPrima. Using Karma you would be able to quickly post a task to the public feed and wait for someone to accept the job. When posting a new task, you would be asked to define the category and nature of what you're asking for, along with a brief description of the requested services. After the runner for your task completes the task (in this case bringing you coffee) you can then rate and accept the transaction.By rating and accepting the payment you're providing the standing for which the runners "karma" score will be defined.
Karma would be build on a native ios platform and would optimize the users experience by leveraging a few different technologies such as university provided student data (class schedule), location services, and the users social network.
