MLH local hack day McGill
Winner for Best Idea/Solution
More and more people get diagnosed with ADHD every year which puts them on a disadvantage on the educational field, and with many students cramming for the upcoming finals, we decided to create a web app which helps with studying.
What it does
It detects when the user starts to fall asleep/doze off and outputs audio and light waves and to wake him up. There is also a stopwatch which records how long the user has been studying for.
We designed our website using a minimalist design to reduce distractions with shades of blue which further promotes concentration.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
The timeframe, since it was an 11 hour hackathon, we didn't have time to finish linking the backend to the frontend.
