With New Zealand's growing population and increase in toursim, how will Councils identify where to invest in public loos?  This app will allow users to find, rate and request a loo across New Zealand.

Grave Diggers

The Wilderpeople

The Wilderpeople are really excited to share with New Zealand a new application game we’ve developed. We’ve called it Gravediggers. You see, we’ve been internalising a really complicated situation in our heads because making the right choices can be really hard in the face of so much information. Turning this into a game is our complicated situation solution- Gravediggers is our portal for you to understand how health risks affect you.

There is an empathy deficit in our world so we’ve built an empathy engine

We surround ourselves with people like us and click on the content we agree with.  We filter out facts and people that don’t fit with the way we see our world.  We create our own bubbles but Bubble.kiwi is is here to pop these biubble, watch our click-bait and switch!

My Life, My Council

Team Name: 
council.life

Is my council spending my money on the things I care about? How does my council's spending compare with other councils?

Finding the answers is difficult and time consuming. It requires interpretation and analysis of complex council reports (annual reports, long-term council community plans etc.) and data.

What happened?

Team Name: 
Psionic Monk

What happened? is a third person adventure game where the player wants to know what happened in the cities he's exploring. This is a game of discovery where each level has a distinct objective and is mapped to a city. The game starts from Whanganui and goes on to explore other cities while discovering interesting facts about each city. Primarily, the facts include death rates and crime stats. 

Project highlights;

* A playable prototype where the contours of the landscape are mapped to contours of Whanganui and ChristChurch.

Docket

Team Name: 
Docket

We want to enhance the economic potential of our national parks and protect our natural heritage and taonga for future generations. We will do this by enabling people to make cashless offline payments when they use outdoor recreation facilities (e.g. DoC huts).

Problem

People don't carry cash on them these days, especially when they're out in the bush. There isn't an easy way for tourists and trampers/ hikers to make payments. This is an under-utilised stream of revenue which could otherwise be used to reinvest in our tourism infrastructure.
