Roto is a music streaming app designed to recontextualize your music library within your life story. By focusing on the music you love and how you consume it, Roto paints a meaningful picture of your life through your music taste.
The timeline feature gives users the ability to see what they were listening to at any given time alongside photos, location data, and statistics.
Playlists are generated from general listening as well as targeted listening tendencies like song beats-per-minute, time of play, the frequency of play, heart rate, and manually-entered moods.
Roto was made with the intent of tackling the problem of streaming library overload. In a time when we no longer have to buy albums to enjoy them, we’ve expanded our music tastes but also overloaded our libraries.
Homeo is a multi-interfaced system aimed at helping reduce energy and water consumption in the household.
The application tracks utility usage for a week, identifying habits and use fluctuations, and afterward proposes realistic goals to meet (ex. minimize spending by 15%).
This one-size-fits-all approach gives more autonomy over the process and helps people save energy and money. A standardized measurement would feel too constricting.
Usage is represented as a fluctuation from an ideal use rate, so there's always complete clarity of how you're doing. Organisms regulate temperature and nutrient levels through the process of homeostasis – maintenance of an ideal balance; we figured, so too could the home.
The interfaces are a mobile app, and mountable displays called “Receptors” that show current usage for targeted, problem-area appliances.
