Why build something of the past when we can create the future! Our service name ManGOmanSTAY was inspired by two major factors: Mango hacks and an idea to recommend ideal vacation plans for every traveler through their disposition determined by their DNA. ManGOmanSTAY uses the work Mango to represent a traveler(Man) Going on vacation; ManSTAY means that man gets to STAY in his piece of mind which on the go. Vacations can be quite stressful and agitating, but with the services of manGOmanStay, travelers can be on the go while maintaining their piece of mind by having accessibility to recommendations that can guide them through their trip.
What it does
Our use of genetics generates custom travel itinerary based on factual studies generated by genome links API. Once the data is combined from the DNA tests with the corresponding recommendations, pertinent blogs, images, and items are also generated by their URLs to help enhance the vacation. These blogs are filled with corresponding information to assist with general problems or questions that may come forth during the trip. The blogs are very fun and insightful, so they are worth reading in a leisurely manner.

Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that our website professionally presents a travel concept never produced before: using genes to enhance travel recommendations. Our service have completed its phase 1 version. We have now started developing a technology to cater to Royal Caribbean. Our algorithm theoretically can assign the ideal Caribbean cruise to individuals based on the data returned from Genomelink.
What we learned
What's next for manGOmanSTAY
There are many paths for the future of manGOmanSTAY, but one is the most important. Our goal is to market to the vacation industry. ManGOmanSTAY currently has a general vacation format that can be recreated for each business requesting our services. For Royal Caribbean, we can generate a service recommends the best cruise, attractions, and activities for cruises based on the data we have compiled using the genes of vacationers. This is the future of vacationing. Why try to live out the perfect vacation in VR and Video games when it can be accomplished in real life. ManGOmanSTAYS services not only eliminates the stress of missing out on desired activities and finding the desired plans, but also creates individual recommendations for each member.
