Lumi Cue is a transformation from frustration to creativity. The initial inspiration came when fighting to get a smart speaker to work in a new way. After brainstorming with other students at Holberton, the Lumi Cue team began to explore ways to use an Alexa skill to brighten up people’s lives. We set out to use our portfolio project to help those with executive dysfunction. As we explored timers, we wanted to develop a visual element that would bring a sense of calm.
In the end, we developed a skill that we’re excited to use in our own homes. We hope that you will be, too.
