 +=== Opening lecture 11th Sept 2014: ===
  
-About “MarketBlue” +Based on brainstorming after opening lecture, we formed ​team with an idea to solve the need for housing ​and accommodation for students
-It’s ​Bluetooth application that will communicate ​with a customer through digital board incorporated in a supermall or Megastore.  +
-Customer will get updated automatically through their Bluetooth device on entrance. +

- ​Server side and client-advertisers side. +
- ​Digital board automatically updates server and customers. +
- ​Several digital boards. +
- ​Customers can update each other.+
  
-Challenges: 
- ​Market competitor.

- ​Convincing to replace existing system. 
- ​Promoting the application to the customers.

-Benefits+  The idea arose from the situation of 2 of us having problems with our accommodation situation. 
- Green +  The reasons behind this proposal were
- Time saving +   
- Accessibility +  *For international students the main option for housing is LOAS, which is of great help, 
- Centralized +   but also is clearly unable to fully accommodate all the students in the area. 
- Cheaper and live +  ​*Other options, such as other companies or private landlords, usually do not rent to foreigners. 
- More productive+     
 +  ​However,​ we did not have a clear idea of what tool or service we needed to develop to solve these problems. 
 +  Also we did not make a final decision on this topic, we also agreed to think of more possible projects, until our next meeting. ​
