Research and Development Proposal

Prepared by: Jeff Barr, Corey Murata & Lynne Watanabe
COM 569: Communication in Video Games and Virtual Worlds
Winter 2012

Proposal:
We propose to develop an email client interface that uses layers of data visualization and game mechanics. The client will make it easier for the user to identify high priority email that needs to be addressed and make strategic decisions about how best to use their time to attend to email. Additionally, the game mechanic will provide immediate feedback and gratification to the user to encourage them to continue working on their email. Finally a social component will allow the user to share their success at ‘battling’ their inbox with their friends on social networks.
