It started from my personal experience when I was a kid. One day, I cooked my noodle with a mushroom from the supermarket. After a finishing the noodle, I had terrible stomachache and went to the hospital. It turned to be that I ate uncooked mushroom.
Another inspiration is from "Into The Wild" film. (Spoiled alert) the main character dies after he had poisonous plants while he was cooking.
Therefore, I want to make a concept of an educational mobile application that lets people discover edible plants or poisoned plants around Central park since It is an iconic park in NewYork and I live here.
I have an idea based on my personal problem that I’ve eaten mushroom that didn’t cook very well. Then, I got a bad stomachache and puked a lot. Another inspiration is from in to the wild movie that the actor, Alex accidentally ate poisoned plant then he died. With these experiences, I found an inspiration from youtube video ” Savage in the wild.”
I would like to create an app that shows area of free herb, plants to eat or to cook as a healthy food. This app also educates New Yorkers to know the different between each edible plants.
Plants in the park is a mobile platform that aims to educate people who live in different cities by teaching them about edible or poisonous plants in their local parks. Users can learn how to prepare and discover new plants in their local areas, which in this case is Central Park, NewYork. The target audience is Vegans, Healthy People, Students and NewYorkers.
