EpicGem is heading into week 11 of 13 at the Founder Institute. After surveying 1,000 random US residents last week to gather information on our product offering, positioning and offering, we surveyed another 500 US residents this week looking for feedback on the EpicGem user interface and experience (or "UI / UX"). User Experience
You can see (and try) our latest online mock-up at http://invis.io/BN39NYZAT. It’s a rough cut intended to illustrate core functionality.
We have engaged with two UI / UX specialists to help carry the design a bit closer to what our initial operating product (our “Minimum Viable Product” in start-up speak) will look like. We will work closely with our designers to iterate their thoughts and hope to have a more polished interface available in about 10 days.
Once we wrap up work with designers by the start of July, we will engage more directly with potential customers, as we will then be able show more clearly EpicGem’s features and ease of use for old and young alike.
Groups identifying themselves in our surveys as being particularly interested in EpicGem included:
- grandparents (particularly those living at least a plane ride away from their grandchildren)
- teachers of young children (3rd grade seems to be a sweet spot)
- parents required by their jobs to experience extended time away from home (people speaking up in our surveys ranged from busy professionals to military personnel)
- parents of special needs children
In the meantime, please keep well.
