Our idea is to get SIU and the Carbondale community as a whole to have a brand new outlook on recycling and sustainment of our planet in general.
Giant 10'x10' QR codes would be placed strategically around the community. For one day only, all SIU employees and Carbondale municipal and business employees will wear a shirt with the QR code printed on them. This code will direct users to a website that, done correctly, will change their views regarding recycling and sustainment to our planet.
Please provide a description of your App in 500-1,000 words. Be sure to include at least 1) what it does, 2) why people will want it (benefits), and 3) how you will sustain it (explain business model).
Our concept takes advantage of smartphone technology in order to access QR codes, as well as existing technologies for motion-sensor, storage, speaker, etc.
This is unique in that we are designing this technology around a new sustainable outlook. We are trying to reinvigorate this communities’ attitude towards a healthier planet. We expect the concept to open up like wildfire from those that interact with the QR codes, through discussing it to those around them, their friends, and social media.
