Organising a day out
During his master’s programme, Ladchartabi developed the smartphone application AllAroundMe, which allows users to organise their perfect day out in a known or unknown city, including for instance a visit to a museum, a restaurant or a cinema. Now, three years later, Ladchartabi runs his own small company, and his product has also become available for the iPhone.
Ladchartabi’s idea has to compete with the Eco Tuk, a version of the traditional ‘tuktuk’ and Vogels! (‘Birds!’), a three-dimensional revalidation game for elderly people suffering from one-sided paralysis.
