The digital world is home to countless mobile apps that are used for every single utilization one can possibly think of. About six months ago, that list got even longer thanks to a group of ultra-innovative students among the ranks of the Academy of Art University in none other than the land of innovation itself, the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
Tenderfeels – what is it, why is there a buzz surrounding the free mobile app
Augmented reality, for example, would include a furniture company using an app similar to Snapchat that uses the aid of hologram-like augmented technology’s depiction on users’ screens so they could effectively try out various items of furniture to see if such selections are right for their needs.
Tenderfeels, on the other hand, is a mobile app that was created by a handful of what are likely some of the brightest minds across the entirety of the campus of the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California, that is designed to be used in no area but that of the Tenderloin District.
The students – they belong to the Academy of Art University’s School of Game Development – showed an executive with the Mayor of San Francisco’s Office of Civic Innovation who is responsible for everything that is even remotely related to things like technology. The Chief Innovation Officer of the aforementioned government bureau was both shown the app and allowed to try it in real-time throughout the Tenderloin District.
As people walk past both particular niche areas in the Tenderloin District, they can use the power of Tenderfeels to inform other people who are using the app in real time or researchers and app owners that aren’t even using Tenderfeels at the time but plan to reviews the aggregate of findings once many people have walked through the entirety of the Tenderloin District and have reported either all or the overwhelming majority of it to the people that make the use of the app possible.
