I've joined Ucaya in July 2016. In fact, it was my very first experience in a design agency. During 4 months, I had the opportunity to work on the product called la Vitre ("the window" in English). This project is an innovative video conference tool for companies. The idea is to allow companies that own several offices, or companies where people work remotely, to keep people connected together. Each office has a large touchscreen display which they switch on every morning and can discuss with people from another office through this screen whenever they want during all the day.
75% of French people think that remote consultation breaks social links between patients and doctors. laVitre, a step toward a more human technology
During this internship, I've worked on the mobile app. Its aim is to control remotely the screen. I've also worked on several possible interactions (knock in the touchscreen display to call someone) and different product features (handwrite a message, share files and media and hang on it as if it's a board, collaborate, and work together on a same shared whiteboard).

In a nutshell
I came at Ucaya a few months before the product release, I had the opportunity to participate in the product launch and its promotion. I was also able to attend product demos facing users, and that was a very exciting part of the project. It was so nice to see this project become a reality, and also get very good feedbacks from the users, all very curious about the product.
