Planetarium is a lifestyle and productivity app designed for smartphones, aiming at helping people introduce new constructive habits or get away from their existing destructive habits, as well as keeping track of the goals they set for themselves. It is in the form of a dynamic, ever changing universe that evolves based on the user's real life activities.
Planetarium uses data visualization, gamification, and visual design to engage with the users and keep them up to speed with their progress. The application’s data visualization does not consist of charts or graphs; it rather uses an ever-evolving universe consisting of stars, planets, and all that exists in the endless skies of the night.
Each month, the user has a new planet. Their actions during that month depict the planet's look and well being for that month. Following their goals in real life helps the planet evolve and prosper and have a chance of containing life, but not following their goals and plans corrupts the planet and devoids it of life. This is done with the use of Procedural Content Generation, without direct input from the user, but rather through a series of questions, asking them about their daily activities and how they are following up with their goals and plans, providing them with a self-reflection on each day.
The users can compare their planets with their friends' and family's, compete in challenges, customize their world, wander in their universe, and more.
This project is developed using Unity 3D.
