RSA Competition 2015: Human By Nature

This is my entry for the 2015 RSA student design awards which was short listed in the category 'Human By Nature'. The brief was to design a means of encouraging people to take care of their own human microbiome (the community of beneficial microbes that live inside our bodies). My idea is based around an app called 'Ferment' which helps raise peoples awareness on the benefits to eating pro-biotic food and how it can help them sustain a healthy microbiome. The app contains a number of different features to help achieve this such as a map function to help users track down local food outlets that sell pro-biotic foods and ingredients, a library listing pro-biotic ingredients and their benefits including corresponding recipes which can be rated by users.
