🕹️ Gamified Car Configurator 🚗
This project was created in 3 days during the MHP – A Porsche Company “Mobility Hack 2022” Hackathon and earned us the second place. Your create your avatar, we create a car configuration for you.
We choose to build this configurator because usually people spend more time creating avatar as playing because it’s fun.
Did you ever try to configure your dream car and felt like drowning in all the options and features? 😖
We feel you, we know the frustration, but we have a solution, using gamification. 👍
How does it work ? 🔧
The idea was to create a sophisticated algorithm which we simplified a lot to be able to implement the idea in 3 days.
(1) You create an avatar which corresponds to you.
(2) We perform a profiling and apply a scoring system.
(3) You got your car configuration, based on your needs and lifestyle !
Let’s start customizing our Avatar, first we have to fill in some input parameters.
Damn ! That’s exactly the car I was looking for ! 🚙 Let’s take a look in the showroom, on the right side you can see all the addiotional options of the car.
Business Model 📈
SAAS (Software as a Service) on which car brands can register and enable users to configure their car through gamification.
If an appointement is taken, we could charge the company.
Actually the logic is pretty simple and based on “stereotypes”
-> But, by adding more input parameters we could find a better matching car.
-> Based on your feeback we could improve our configurator’s accuracy
-> Aside of finding your car in this world, we could also help you to find your virtual car in the Metaverse.
