Prioritize and maximize your time


Proximize is a mobile app that is made for college students so they can prioritize and maximize their time. It uses biometric hand sensors that count the number of people going in and out of the five dining halls on campus. When the user opens the app they can see how populated each dining hall is so they can plan their time efficiently. All the extra time not spent standing in line and wrestling with the crowds now can be spent studying, socializing, and working. Proximize will lay the foundation to create a connected environment on campus for future students. With the same technology that Proximize uses, eventually we can connect all of the buildings on campus.
