We got inspired by our own difficulties while in school. Learning is always more fun when it is shared, interactive and unique.

What it does

MementU bridges the gap between interaction, creativity and learning. Our App is a revolutionary learning tool, it allows users to create, edit, store and share customized flash cards. Whether in elementary schools. college, your professional life or as a hobbyist MementU is the right tool for you. It enables users to connect with peers to share knowledge in a very fun and dynamic way. With gamification features MementU turns a learning experience into a journey.

How I built it

We built our MVP (Minimum Viable Product) from scratch using. HTML5, CSS3, Vanilla Javascript, Ruby on Rails, C9, AWS. As we had little time to come up with a prototype we tried to do a basic app that presents a little bit of our ideas. As well as we documented all brainstorming and ideas for the product.

Challenges I ran into

We had some issues setting up the environment and we learned we have to set up everything prior to hackathons. Also, we made use of totally brand new technologies to accomplish our tasks and every time we faced an obstacle we tried to think outside the box, ask for help and guidance from mentors.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We created something that did not exist before and has potential to impact the lives of thousands of people anywhere in the world. Having this been our first hackthon we are truly inspired by helping people learn in a creative way.

What I learned

We learned how to overcome difficult problems in very creative ways and that's what hacking is all about.

What's next for MementU

We plan on keep implementing the already defined functionalities and to launch the app for the public. We also would like to integrate other technologies such as AR, so the users can see the right answers interactively in their smartphone devices.
