HUGE shoutout from the Sherman Center to all our Fall 2021 Generate Teams who have worked hard on their projects and have acomplished a lot for projects! 🎉🏆
Hardware Teams

Not pictured: Liza Russel (Project Lead)
ClickiTz 🧰
ClickTz is a maker toy that allows children to build their own completely customizable playhouse with a set of buildable pieces. We developed 14 different custom pieces, and the final product has varying numbers of these pieces that can be combined to create an infinite number of playhouses. In addition to this physical prototype, the team developed two other design sets as well as designs for manufacturing sketches the client can take to manufacturers

Solon 💸
Solon is a decentralized cryptocurrency used as the main form of payment for our ecosystem. The team is working on a physical card reader clients can use to trade this cryptocurrency. 


Phoenix 👠

Phoenix is a high heel shoe that transforms into a flat shoe through the push of a button. Generate will be creating a functioning prototype of the high heels to conduct user testing. The team will first validate the existing designs and make any structural modifications needed before testing. The team will then iterate on the design, using the user feedback to guide new development.

HapticPack 🎮
HapticPack is a modular haptic vest. This vest simulates physical feedback with detachable sockets to produce various user experiences. 
Software Teams 

Rooted Living

Rooted Living 
Started by a fellow Northeastern student Rachel Domb, Rooted Living aims to provide the public with delicious snacks wrapped in sustainable packaging. The app we designed and began building allows users to purchase Rooted Living's products, view the client's plant-based recipes, and visualize the impact that their purchases have had on the planet. 
Shownxt 📱
ShowNxt is a video-sharing social media app turning passion into opportunity, starting in the world of collegiate soccer recruiting.  On ShowNxt, athletes can showcase themselves to the world by posting highlights, connecting with college coaches, and hiring freelance video creators.

Shortfall 💻
This semester, the Shortfall team set out to begin building an online educational strategy game from the ground up. Additionally, we have laid the groundwork for other engineers to quickly begin working on the other features and iterating on the existing ones. We also have a myriad of extremely polished brand and UX designs for several features of this game, which could be immediately picked up and applied by any future team. 
HUGE shoutout from the Sherman center for our Fall 2021 ventures whom have working countless hours to make their ventures a step closer to reality! 🎉🏆

Blacket 🛍️
Olanrewaju "Hakeem" Oloritun, Brandon Moorer & James Tukpah

Blacket is a novel community platform that lets Black businesses organically interact with Black users and their allies!

Hanna Elzaridi, Chloe Welch, & Vishakh Talanki

"SOAR is a sports supplements startup. When we looked into the protein powder industry specifically, we found it to be expensive, not environmentally friendly, and not convenient to students. This is why we decided to develop a protein powder vending machine that will be affordable, eco-conscious, and conveniently located in university gyms!"

Kaolin Beauty💄
Michelle Beaudette

Kaolin Beauty is an ethical, non-toxic, zero-waste makeup and self-care company that strives for both spiritual and environmental excellence.

Isabel Arthur & Maddie Rocklin-Waltch

We know that people with vaginas experience intra-vaginal soreness, and/or irritation due to a variety of reasons-medical conditions, sexual activity, gynecological procedures, and common infections to name a few-but there is currently no satisfactory product on the market to soothe this discomfort. So, we’re creating it! At Impropr, we’re not only developing an intra-vaginal ice pack to meet this need, but we’re also building a community dedicated to de-stigmatizing traditionally “improper” topics, like sexual health, and creating a space to speak openly about issues related to reproductive care.
SaluTemp 💊
Theodora Christopher, Benjamin Dottinger & Tyler Royere

It is estimated that over 44% of pharmaceuticals sold in the US are biologics, a temperature-sensitive medication (Trible, 2018). These medications require refrigeration as they should be stored between 2ºC and 8ºC to prevent protein aggregation, which can reduce the efficacy of the medication. SaluTemp looks to create a device to monitor the temperature and light exposure of medications. Our mission is to increase patient safety by tracking temperature and light data to ensure the proper storage of vulnerable medication!
Kevin (Taeyoon) Jin 

Kepler is the design-centric, fully customizable website builder for the WordPress ecosystem. Responsible for more than 40% of the entire internet, WordPress gives Kepler a unique platform of rich plugins and features other website builders can't match. One of our biggest goals is to launch a wide array of new features through a hard launch in late October. In addition, we want to foster a dedicated fanbase of users on Kepler who will help us build the ecosystem out together
