Spring 2019 - Capstone Two Project: VetCoin
Recognizing that one in twenty-two veterans commit suicide every day, Capstone students worked to create a solution. VetCoin™ is a service dedicated to creating a more unified sense of community for both veterans and students as well as promote meaningful connections. VetCoin™ is a smart coin intended to facilitate and initiate social interactions amongst student veterans. Resembling military branches, VetCoin™ carries features such as augmented reality, geolocation, and wifi capabilities to enhance user experience.

Spring 2019 Capstone One Project: VPlay
Vplay is a mobile platform designed to provide fun and interactive educational games for children ages 3-7. It uses Augmented Reality to integrate with the child's environment. Our goal is to change the behavior of children when interacting with screens. Specifically changing the epidemic of the passive use of screens and promoting an exciting and dynamic learning experience. Vplay will provide children with an app that helps parents balance the amount of screen time their children are being exposed to without removing the screen completely away, allowing children to reimagine the screen and enter the scene.

Fall 2018 Capstone One Project: VetCoin
ITI students worked together to tackle the issue of isolation felt by university veterans. To bridge the gap between social students and lone wolf vets, this team has created a game by implementing a unique spin on military-style Challenge Coins. These smart coins serve as a causal agent to promote "meet-ups" in a classic PVP game scenario around campus. With the guidance of the ITI faculty, we aim to create a more unified sense of community for veterans and students alike. Participants will be creating their own meaningful connections while having fun along the way.
