The Dongle: Prototype 2.1

This final concept map can be summarized as follows: Our system helps to share short term tasks with friends, family, and team members so that they can support us in order to achieve our long term goals.

The top component is carried around and pressed down on whenever a task is completed

The top component helps users keep track of what tasks need to be completed throughout their day. Once a user completes their task, they can designate that task as a completed item by rotating the top half of the device to that specific task and then pushing down on it with their thumb to mark it as completed.

The device also comes with a base station where the user’s long term goals are displayed. When the top component is placed onto the base plate, it turns on the station. This is a security measure, which helps to prevent other people from seeing one’s long term goals.

As soon as the top component is placed on the station, all the tasks that have been completed are downloaded into the base station. The overall cumulative data then determines the tilt of the top component. For example, a extremely tilted position means that the user’s goals are not balanced.
