Citybeez is a connected poster frame + an app.
Through the application, the poster frame sends by Bluetooth informations related to events linked to the place where it is (museums, libraries, bars, nightclubs …). Smartphones that have the application collect these informations and push it in the newsfeed. The user just has to check his phone to know all the events around him.
This project was realised for a one week workshop (connected object workshop) by groupe of 2. We designed the interfaces, we coded the app and also the poster frame: the poster frame send informations by Bluetooth to the application that translate it into a graphical element that represents event. Every poster frame send the event informations about the poster they have (e.g. poster of Justin Bieber’s concert send informations about Justin Bieber’s concert).
