The Purple Rain Index

Purple Rain

Project Description

The Purple Rain Index turns individuals into insurance advocates by educating them about flood risk, through this process they learn about the risk for their close friends and family and can easily share this data.

Speaking to IAG a common problem they have is communicating the importance of risk before it happens. So we thought, what if we could turn individuals into a salesmen for their personal friends and family, that way the information is coming from trusted source rather directly from IAG.

Our mission is to create a mobile app which gamifies the process of learning how to drive.

Users will be motivated to practise driving, while getting feedback on their progress and what they can improve in their driving technique.

This makes for an easier and more pleasant learning experience.

The goal of our product is to connect people with the type of suburbs that they want to live. When you think about your neighbourhood, there’s probably a lot that you love about it. Maybe it’s the time it takes you to get to work, the types of shops in the area or how easy it is to catch public transport. While current property services only account for suburb and pricing searches, HOME extends this to find areas to live that meet all of your requirements.

Pipe Dream

The platform we built is called The Growth Spot. It is a data visualisation tool used to show how a particular industry is growing or shrinking in a given region of Australia, using several available metrics from the innovation data set. This is a platform technology that will one day have the ability to accrue data as it is added to the database using automated data mining technology. We would also like to implement a regression analysis system to provide predictive information regarding the performance of an industry of interest.
