For those of you who aren’t familiar with Sony’s Future Lab Program, it’s where Sony shares Concept Prototypes still in development at Sony R&D with users for opportunities to co-create future lifestyles. N is the first Concept Prototype from Future Lab Program. It features an open-ear, neckband-style wearable device that allows users to hear ambient sound and stay engaged with the world, while benefiting from the additional audio information that N can provide.
We have opened up the development environment for N, and now there is a new segment available for the web-based collaboration tool Trello, called Trello-N. We are proud to present the developers behind this segment, Emil Guareno and Freddy Zozaya. They are part of the winning team Sonyfied that participated in the Developer Week Hackathon in February.
Emil and Freddy are both developers who studied Web Design and Interactive Media at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in Florida. Since completing their studies, Emil has worked at various companies, most recently Disney Studios as a Senior Front-end Engineer, while Freddy is currently working at Hulu as a Senior UI Engineer.
We asked Emil and Freddy to explain their idea behind the Trello-N segment. Here’s what they said;
“We use Trello on a daily basis, for both professional and personal task management. We wanted to build an application that will highlight the true benefit of the device in both personal and professional settings. After going through a few ideas, we finally decided to use Trello because of a few reasons. First, they have an open API with lots of capabilities and second, their interface has an immediate response. Once an action is performed through the Trello segment, their interface will be immediately updated, which helps the state of the Trello application to stay in sync.”
Trello and the Trello-N segment
Trello is a web-based collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is within a project plan.
The Trello segment for N allows anyone with a Trello account to perform tasks directly through voice commands. A person can login using their Trello account and be able to list all of their project boards, select a project board, list all cards under a specific section, move card from one list to the other, and add comments to their cards.
