The aim of the project is to have a Flexible studio of the future. Why flexible???In what way??? Every educational institute has students of varied learning and working styles and it is very important to be able to provide them with spaces which boosts their interest and potential of work. This thought formed the base of the concept leading us to monitor noise and number of people in each space and providing this information to students so that they are able to find the spot that will help them be most productive.

colabCase is an object/system that clearly communicates a student;s skills, background, and his/her availability to help. This initiates a culture of sharing knowledge and swapping skills, taking the idea of "interdisciplinary learning" to a new level.
We see the learning space of the future as a connected system linking people to people, leveraging their skill-sets and backgrounds through incentivizing helping others and creating more well-rounded students.
Doomba Inc. (DOOM) was founded in 2005 by a team of visionaries that believed in automation and advanced artificial intelligence. “When the pet cemetery around the corner went out of business, we knew it was meant to be”, muses Dick E. Vil, co-founder of Doomba. Without hesitation did they buy the lot and set up their headquarters, where they are located to this day. According to rumors, the same lot used to serve as an Indian burial site before it was repurposed by European settlers.
Doomba robots are highly regarded in the industry for their autonomy and varied functionality. Especially compared to iRobot’s (IRBT) Roomba cleaning robots the Doomba’s outshine the competition with a rich feature set. “More than cleaning” has long been the successful slogan marketing the remarkable little robots. It doesn’t surprise then that the newest generation of Doomba, aptly named “The new Doomba”, incorporates functionality such as gamification elements over the cloud, a high powered shredder and a gentle encouragement algorithm. Especially the latter feature is thought of as a breakthrough in household machines. Doomba’s encouragement algorithm analyses historic dust databases and compares them to the Doomba community. Based on these findings, Doomba will then gently remind you of your duty’s and encourage you with positive and constructive feedback. The new Doomba will be available on February 29th and will sell for $666.

We all forget to pickup important things in hurry. What if when we opened our main door and it reminded us to pick these important things. What if we never have to worry again about these small but very important things. I have tried to solve this problem, by creating a force sensitive pad where I can keep important objects and if I forget to pick them up, my door knob connected to a tilt sensor triggers a alarm when I am leaving my house, reminding me to pick them.
Don't worry, Be happy.
