Project BonBon

BonBon is an innovative order and payment application that can be used at catering establishments. The catering visitors will end up in the BonBon app by means of a NFC-Tag, provided that the app has been downloaded. Via this app, orders can be placed, and payments can be made afterwards. The orders are not brought to the table by the waiter, but the waiter brings it to a "pick-up table". The customer then receives a notification in the app that his / her order is ready and that it can be picked it up at the collection point. Because of this app, there is no longer direct contact between the customer and the waiter.

Project Breeze Social Distanced Dates

During this crisis especially singles have a hard time. Those that live alone, even more. Due to the social distancing policies mental issues within this group have increased. Some call it the "loneliness virus".We believe that the excitement and the intimacy (without touching!) of a date, function as a medicine for this "loneliness virus". We also believe that it's very well possible to this in a responsible manner. We see it as our mission to make these responsible dates happen.

Project Feat

Our world is enormous and not many people (if any) can imagine a whole range of possible jobs that match with particular skills. This is especially true for low-and-middle income workers who are on the worse end of information inequality. We want to help these people find non-trivial solutions for which industries they can enter with the skills they have. We are building an algorithm that matches the skills people possess in one profession/industry adversely affected by Covid-19 to a thriving industry and tell them what additional courses they should do to close the skills gap for another industry and train themselves. We supplement this with prime industry insights to support them in making informed choices.

Project ReMask

We cannot defeat the coronavirus just yet, however, we can think about ways to slow it down. The shortage of medical safety masks is a big problem What if we can make a medical safety mask with basic materials and tools, available for everybody? Would this help slowing down this crisis and prevent more deaths? Would it support medical staff and protect the vulnerable? I introduce the KRONA mask, a medical mask with an active charcoal filter which is locally produced in the Netherlands. The mask is targeted towards two audiences: the medical world; hospitals and care houses, and other critical professions; for example the cleaners of hospitals and informal caregivers. The hospitals need a fully qualified mask.

Project Maggie

Pandemics cause overload in hospitals, which results in high pressure on hospital personnel. This endangers the hygienic awareness, overall performance and the well being of health care workers. Our bracelets remind healthcare workers of hygienic routines and monitor their blood pressure, pulse, transpiration levels and temperature. Based on these measurements, a clear and concise data visualization system can be offered to the management of hospitals, allowing for better and more efficient decision-making as well as protection of health care workers.
