Nauxi – the green loop
“An application to manage a virtual tree and to play an active role in carrying out research on reforestation".
Scientific research requires huge quantities of data in order to produce any conclusive results. Which is where citizen science comes in: a concept based on the general public participating in the research of a group of scientists.
Paul Joly, during his studies in UI/UX design, had the idea of Nauxi: an application in which users manage a virtual tree. In order to make this tree grow, they observe the clouds in real life. They transmit information to the Nauxi database. This data is then sold for scientific purposes. When the tree reaches maturity, users can replant their tree in a forest. In addition to the game, the user also plays an active role in carrying out research on global warming and reforestation.
This project is part of Design portfolio 2020, a selection of 36 projects from this year which bear witness to the talent, creativity and know-how developed by the students during their undergraduate studies.
