Inspiration

We think especially older people are at risk of loneliness and isolation, because they are - either out of physical limitations or because of not being familiar with technical devices - often not able to get into contact with others digitally.
With Videas we strive to make it as simple as possible for caregivers to offer video chats - with the lowest hardware requirements possible.

What it does

  • Simple planning tool for video chats with low effort for the caregivers.
  • Residents and visiting times are entered once, then a link can be sent to relatives and friends. Using this link to our web app they can book a video chat at a day and time of their choosing.
  • At the booked time a video chat opens automatically on the appropriate device and closes after the booked time (e.g. 30 mins).
  • Appointments are listed and can be printed out.

How we built it

  • Planning & realization in our team of four:
  • Low fidelity mockups, UX/UI, logo, video (Jaye)
  • Logo, images, landing page (Valy)
  • MVP with Flutter Web and Firebase (Mark)
  • Backend with python, pitch video (Alex)
