SWAY

by Henry Tran

Being in college often provides exciting opportunities to work in a team, but not when your teammates come unprepared. This can easily lead to an unproductive meeting with full of distractions to team members. From going on your phone to side conversations with your other teammates. Distraction can easily prevent tasks from being completed and frustrate all team members. And nobody enjoys an unproductive team meetings! Sway is a productivity hub that provides a 20 minutes timer during meetings. With the hub, team members can unobtrusively tap the device to notify distractions and bring it to the attention of teams by the change of gradual light between red and green. Sway also has an integrated web app to help users organize meetings and check on progress to improve future meetings. Sway is created with Arduino and it is fully functional to use!
