why did i choose this project?
I chose Pindaloo after interviewing businesses for my final project. I chose them because they work in international markets, have clear business goals based on solid data.
My job in the project was to select the business, interview the functionaries regarding the toy/the audience, and to conduct research of customer responses and usage observation. Their previous issue was that the company was looking for a way to advance their sales and increase user interaction. By inserting myself, I helped the development of this application.
The Pindaloo is an innovative juggling game designed for ages 9 and up. It is simple in its essence, but still has key qualities that make it stand out. It does not depend on the screen or a working Internet connection.
Pindaloo is a coach for success as it develops motor skills and hand-eye contact coordination, which is important for all users no matter their ages, although the main target audience is users aged 9-25. The app is still in progress, but in hopes of coming to fruition in the near future.
Enter the American market for a more mature target audience
By the end of 2021 to earn over two million dollars for development.
