Last week Globoforce had their annual innovation competition. It’s an opportunity for anyone in the company to propose new ideas for our product. Suggestions can be simple feature enhancements or something entirely new. In a moment of weakness, Julie, Alan and I decided to propose something a bit crazy — a device that would enable users to operate our application using only their voice.
The judges called our bluff and put us on the shortlist. Suddenly we had 5 days to come up with a prototype that would be presented to the entire company!
We decided to make a short movie, inspired by pretty much every Kickstarter campaign ever. Totally tongue in cheek and very home spun — but we’re happy it catches the essence of our idea.
Holli herself was made from the top of a Pringles tub and a bunch of Christmas tree lights. If you look carefully you can see Julie hiding behind the reception desk turning it on and off!
