Project details

With Colimo, five young Hive residents have come up with an interactive, personalized app that allows a city’s inhabitants to interact with their city according to their journey routes and mood, in order to enhance their quality of life.

The Colimo app begins by asking you to sign up via a social network in order to find out more about your tastes and personality, processing your public information using a tailored AI algorithm. An avatar collects information according to your tastes and mood when you use Colimo to find a recommendation for a new place to go, a night out or a hike.

The application also has a participative approach aimed at get people involved in city life by encouraging them to provide detailed feedback to the city’s administrators. For example, using augmented reality, users can geolocate and flag a faulty streetlamp, a missing garbage container or other incidents on the street in real time by placing an icon, taken from a 3D object library, at the exact location.
