Shop Smart is a system that allows users to stay on top of their tasks in their every day lives.
Traditional lists are static in that once defined they reside either on paper or more recently on smart phones. The onus is on people themselves to be remember their tasks and take action to fulfill the tasks that they are supposed to carry out. Very frequently, the list is forgotten and sometimes incomplete.
I did some preliminary research to find out what makes people tick.
- 41% of to-do tasks are never completed.
- People feel more rewarded when they celebrate things getting gone.
- If a list is too big, it often doesn’t get completed.
- When people make priorities, things get done faster.
People make inefficient to-do lists that are often too daunting. They don’t reward themselves for getting things done.
"How might we ease the process of planning, optimize the act of doing, and celebrate finishing?"
Since we have AI on our side, let's design a way to alleviate users' pain points and remind users of tasks they need to do.
Let's also make the process of creating tasks easy and reward users for completion.
