Can an app have a real-life prototype that resembles and displays how the app works?
The Appsolute exercise in Semester 1 pushed us to do just that. We made a 3d working model which showed how the OkCupid app worked. We later made a graphic for it on an individual level.
The vertical cylinders in the center of the graphic symbolize the different profiles which we see on the app. The ramp is the pathway on which one can walk and see these different profiles. Each person using the app (or the model in this case ) has 2 options, either to like a profile or ignore it. If the person wants to like a profile, they swipe right in the app. In the graphic, the user rotates the cylinder in a clockwise direction, which then makes the cylinder fall down and hit a metal surface, making a ringing sound, which resembles the notification sound the person being liked gets on their phone.
