Huddle

App Design

At almost every concert, everyone holds up their phone and views a good portion of the stage on their tiny screens. Huddle aims to change that so people can live in the moment.

Project Summary

Problem

Phones have become an extension of our bodies. We spend more time trying to keep record of events than living in the moment.

Solution

Create an app that collaborates with venues to livestream events and send high quality footage and images straight to your phone.

How It works

The app will connect to the closest Huddle camera in the venue, and will automatically begin sending live content to your phone.

Insight

An important aspect of humanity gets lost through the use of our phones: experiencing moments

Problem

Nowadays, it’s normal for concert viewers to immediately pull out their phones when the show starts. Although there are artists and performers who are alright with this (and even welcome the use of phones), there are also many who find it a hindrance.

Research

my personal experience

I went through all of my concert videos, and saw how all of them had the audience with their phones out, especially right in my face.

persona

Our persona represents our primary target audience, which is young adults who are energetic and down-to-earth music lovers

sitemap

We mapped out the content of the app, and made it so that it was mainly for the concert viewers, but also had some functionality for the venues that use huddle.

wireframes

We then sketched low-fidelity wireframes.

Huddle App

The Huddle app would be mostly used by concert goers. All they would have to do is connect to a camera, and then just put their phones back in their pockets and wait for the footage to start rolling in.

Connect

To connect to a camera, just tap on the logo and it'll find the closest Huddle camera to you inside the venue. The camera will then start sending you live footage of the concert to your phone.

clips

Once the footage is sent, you'll receive them as clips, and you can share them.

events

You can also find more events that use Huddle.

Takeaways

I learned a lot about the technical aspects of the project, especially with how to make this technology work realistically. There definitely needs to be some modifications made if this service were to exist in real life.
