ÔASYS, A PROJECT WHICH CHANGES OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH WATER
03 October 2014
The closing session of Imagine Silicon Valley, held yesterday in the Agbar Tower, included the presentation of four disruptive projects, promoted by 12 young so-called ‘dreamers’ who, for one month, have tried to find different ways of solving four challenges with an ambitious objective: to transform the world into a better place.
One of the projects presented was Ôasys, sponsored by Aqualogy and developed by three ‘dreamers’, Catalina Balseiro (Aqualogy), Carolina Uribe (Imagine CC) and Daniel Benito (PwC). The project aimed to interact and experience water in a completely different, smarter and more sensorial way. With Ôasys, you can monitor in real time the water that you consume each day, know whether you are well hydrated and detect leaks. All this is represented in the game with a personalized avatar for each family member. You can moreover compare this information with your city and families with the same profile as you and share it on the social networks. Ôasys is a perfect product for families which want to promote positive water use habits in their children.
At the end of the event, the Director General of Aqualogy Solutions, David Hernández, confirmed that Aqualogy will work with the ‘dreamers’ of the project to make the prototype of Ôasys become a reality.
A game for tablets which allows children to drive at the same time as their parents and which promotes responsible driving, collaborative insurance policies on the social networks and an application which develops a network to combat the loneliness of the elderly, were the other three projects presented and whose central focus can be found in the new way in which people relate to each other and with what are traditionally called ‘new technologies’.
The Agbar Tower was lit up in yellow on the occasion of the closing event of the Imagine Silicon Valley project, the predominant colour of this initiative which promotes creativity and entrepreneurship.
