Project Name: Banjo App
Project Credits: Banjo
Project Brief Description:
Banjo is a cell phone app that acts as a mode of connecting two strangers dependent on their physical location. The application was first conceived upon the creator realizing an old friend of his had been at the same airport terminal as him without either of them knowing it. To enhance the familiar stranger physical connection on the go, Banjo can easily discover whether a contact is nearby or whether someone with similar interests and a potential future colleague or business relationship is in the vicinity. Banjo uses real time GPS location of the user’s cell phone to pin point them on the application. The app then shows, on a real time map, friends or potential friends with similar interests. Banjo also allows the user to “pre-visit” a location ahead of time and see where people are gathering, what places to avoid, or the happening places to eat. Banjo mixes business with pleasure through cell phone GPS and social media.
