LuluHub is an interactive terminal that would sit in stores to provide voluntarily provided member information about fitness and well-being.
3. Opportunity: Which pillar of well-being, and which aspect of that particular pillar, are being addressed by the idea? In what way does it influence a pillar? What type of individual and community would benefit from the idea?
LuluHub is conceived to improve and enhance all aspects of well-being, to include body, mind and community. A LuluHub member would share her physical or mind activity in anonymous and symbolic form in the LuluHub, and other members could see where and when these activities occur on a map. Members could then research those sites (health clubs, schools, etc.) on LuluHub or on their own and choose to participate. LuluHub would provide useful information about body and mind in a community format.
4. Innovation: Why is your idea unique, novel, and/or impactful? What will the future look like if we’re successful in bringing your idea to life? How does the proposed solution differ from existing solutions addressing human well-being?
LuluHub functions using gentleness, an attribute that has been fading from society. It is simply based on the idea that LuluHub members enjoy their chosen physical and mental pursuits and believe others could benefit from the same pursuits and are willing to share locations and times for them to learn for themselves, and possibly join in. If LuluHub takes root, it will contribute to more people pursuing health, happiness and belonging to a larger community. LuluHub is soft and whispers.
5. Action Plan: Please justify and briefly describe the major steps needed to make this idea a reality. Does the technology and understanding exist now? Is it likely to exist in the next 3-5 years?
The technology to implement LuluHub is available now, and if accepted, could be realized within this year. In basic form, it is a computer terminal with a dedicated function, and is not very different from other forms of sharing data, such as Yelp or Trip Advisor, except its focus is on physical and mental activities and a connection to a community. The terminal could be enhanced to be more WOW, using translucent interfaces. Over time, LuluHub could transition to an online presence.
