Snapster is a collaborative photo sharing desktop application. The unique design unifies the management environment and the sharing environment into one seamless experience.
Key features include:
- Peer to Peer (P2P) enables users to share images directly with their intended audiences.
- Image tags, both user and system defined file attribute labels, produce an image file management system that abstracts away from the hierarchical file system on the hard disks.

Daytripper is a community based ride-sharing service for older adults. The service not only solves a transportation problem for this group of people at a risk of mobility - but also promotes social engagement and volunteering.
This service is enabled by an assistive smart keychain that:
- Allows seniors to subscribe to ride-share pools
- Get carpool notifications, updates and reminders
- Keep track of their credits and karma
- Make new friends on-the-go

Adobe® Flash® Professional software is a powerful authoring environment for creating animation and multimedia content.
Sound is mostly manipulated with ActionScript code which treats sound as a programming object and allows for precise control. In contrast, the developer's experience is incomplete and clunky when controlling sound through the graphical user interface (GUI).
Our design proposal includes a declarative (point & click) way of controlling sound through the Flash GUI in a precise and predictable way.
