This project was given to the Mobile Design class that I taught at Virginia Tech. The class was predominantly seniors, with a couple of juniors, and a few sophomores.
A pain point is a problem, real or perceived. Entrepreneurs create opportunities for themselves by finding solutions to pain points. This is especially true of app creators. I asked the students to think of issues or problems in their lives that would be considered pain points. Always forgetting about leftovers in the fridge? Is it a lack of Vitamin D? Whatever it may have been, they were tasked with creating an app to ease their pain.
Students presented their concepts and prototypes in class. Click the images or links to view the students' process books.
