Natureye
Natureye: a user-centric design model built mobile application which connects you to nature. 

Don't worry if you are not a frequent traveller due to some reason, this application brings you a Virtual Reality mode of communication with the places, where you can feel the nature using some certain hardware components that we will be discussing further. 

The idea is to connect humans in the metro cities to nature. According to our user research, most of the people are willing to travel to places, especially the places with more natural resources, facilities, and greenery. 

The main constraints from the users were like - time, job, money, and lack of scenic places. 

Thereby, I and my teammates (Ankur Singh and Shreedhar Govil) decided to start with a rough sketch on our cognitive thought process. Later, we could prototype it using a high fidelity prototyping tool. 

The idea of VR? Quite common with most of the other application, and how is it connecting humans to nature? So, it's a hardware-oriented feature, especially for the non-frequent travellers. The application uses an additional frame for the VR box with a built-in fan, receptors, and some more additional feasible sensing features for a better VR view. The idea is to mesmerize the user with virtual reality. 

And if you are a nature-lover or a traveller, then you can use this application to map the places with a better air quality index than your current location, and ignores the places with bad air quality index. Also, based on your search history, this application will recommend you some similar places. So, it helps you to plan your journey as well.

As a user, you can always have a unique credential for signing into the application, where you can customize your dashboard according to your needs. Also, you can give reviews and recommendations using the same account, which helps the other users and creates a trust factor.
