because the quality and origin of food is sometimes hard to retrace, feed’r aims to simplify food labeling and make it more transparent by using QR-code-stickers. you can scan your food and check its ingredients and origin wherever you like.
in addition there is a feed’r online community where you can create an individual profile and get in touch with other feed’rs to share nutritional facts, recipes, information about food intolerances and diets, get support when planning a dinner, enter cooking contests and so on.
a lot of people in our nowadays society are constantly dissatisfied. however, life standards and wealth are also constantly rising. what we need therefore to strengthen awareness of one’s personal luck and happiness and, by doing so, to make it grow.

nowadays not all youngsters have the possibility to get support from older people (like grandparents), and the elderly often feel unimportant. by bringing those groups together we can balance out these kinds of deficits.
at Wisdom Replanted the young can learn various life lessons from the elderly by reinacting and re-interpretating their stories and the elderly can in turn also learn from the young. friendships form that probably wouldn’t have formed otherwise and the generations grow together.

it’s the final countdown! to counteract any symptoms of fatigue we started the day off with coffee and delicious croissants from frömmel confectionery again.
even though we were a little slower to start working than on the preceding days, we soon worked concentratedly on our prototypes. movies were filmed, logos and websites were designed, descriptions were formulated.
everyone was so busy that lunch – hummus and falafel from neni again – was postponed for at least half an hour by most jammers.
as the afternoon proceeded, the situation tightened noticeably as the teams were rendering and re-rendering their movies, looking for music and figuring out what material exactly they had to put on the website. but however stressed the jammers were – the atmosphere was still calm.
everyone managed to upload their projects on time – phew! the tension faded while the jammers realised slowly that they were finished.
afterwards we took a closer look at all the projects jammed: UrbanFriday.com, Wisdom Replanted, feed’r and Luck&Happiness
and so it was done! time for celebration!
thank you, everyone, for a great jam! we hope to see you again in 2014!
