Week 7 has already passed and in my group we had our final touches to our final constructive idea for our NGO ‘Robotica Educativa’. As a solution our group came up with the idea of creating an online platform, more specifically, creating an APP for Robotica Educativa. Our group theme was crowdfunding, kickstarter for instance is a way of crowdfunding, however our idea of creating an app is to create a Game Application in form of robots games which requires donations from people all around the globe in order to be able to play the game. This donation helps robotica to use the money and create robot.
Here is the script about our constructive idea, making an APP:
The main idea of our group is to collaborate with,Tecnologico De Monterrey or Guadalajara University in Mexico, in order to develop a robot game for Robotica Educativa on the App Store. We did an analysis of games which we considered were the most similar ones to what we want to make. Iron Man, which is a very successful game developed by Gameloft company. Because of the real visual effect and excellent game experience, it attracts millions subscribers each year. More than that, the users of this game are required to donate money for their robots, if they want to play further or update the kits. In this way, Gameloft company, makes a huge profit. After all this research we discovered that there is a great potential to get financial benefits out of a game made by Robotica Educativa.
Our design idea draw from this previous experience. We would like to focus on addressing crowd-funding through this game platform. This game is designed in five parts, including, Community Introduction, Robots Design, Personal Account, Game Center, and Exhibition.
The first part, community introduction, is used for giving a brief background introduction of Robotic Educativa. Through widely publicity, the users will have a better understanding about what the arduous challenge Robotica Educativa facing.
When it comes to the Robots Design, It provides several robot roles for the players of all over the world, and it is also an innovation platform we provide for the Mexican kids, they could design any kinds of robot they want in the game as well.
Game Center: The donation is the most important part in the Game Center. The players should pay money for the robot they like, even the small mechanical parts of the robot. They could choose the amount of money they want to donate freely. Once the donation is done the user has the absolute freedom to play games and update their kits. Also the users will see how his/her robots improve while playing. In the meanwhile, each robot has a value evaluation, when enough money has been collected, this amount of money is going to be used for the materials to make the real robot for kids.
Personal Account: Each player needs to create a personal account in order to play. Here the user will be able to see his/her donations. In addition, there will be also space for all the records they would have in the game system.
Exhibition Page: This page is used for exhibiting all of the real robot they make.
It also provides a platform for Robotica Educativa to interact with all of those who are willing to know and help them. They will be able to upload videos and comment on their activities in Mexico, show everyone the facilities they have to produce all their products…
Robotica Educativa will probably need technical support in order to create the real app. therefore we are going to contact Tecnologico De Monterrey or Guadalajara University and ask for their help. A good game will have more fame though, more advantages for Robotica Educativa.
