Stockie the IOT shopping list

by Max Beyer

    Stockie is a system that allows you to add items to a shopping list using physical buttons (tags) that you can press.

    The Stockie is a system for keeping track of your grocery by clicking physical buttons. Scattered throughout the house there are small tags or panels called Stockies. You can attach the tags to individual products or things that need them, while panels provide multiple buttons and are designed for places where multiple things are stored, like the pantry. You can then click on a Stockie to add an item to your shopping list. The system is very simple to use, for kids, the elderly or even visitors. The shopping list is updated dynamically, in real time and the system can also order things online for automated delivery. The desire is to save time and eliminate errors while keeping things simple, this is why the tags need to be product-centric or use centric, instead of a centralized list or an app on your phone. Stockies are also a good way to remind you when an item is low. For instance, if you have any item in your pantry if you place the Stockie tag behind that item when the item runs out you see the Stockie and press the button. We have currently started development, with a hardware engineer and software developer. You can see some of our "in progress" photos here: https://imgur.com/a/4Hmzb.

    (Expected) Revenue

    We do not have an expected revenue.

    Risks & challenges

    As with all projects, there is the risk of people not having enough time. However, I think I have found a dedicated team, and it's a really interesting project. There is also the risk of it not making it to market, either through a lack of funds or a lack of marketing. However, I think that these won't come to pass as I have found great team members so far and we are dedicated and passionate about this project.
