Demo 1
Getting your McMaster meal plan balance, adding more money, and looking up recent transactions can be difficult to do and time consuming. The experience is not a fun one. Mu Wallet gets all this done in one simple app. Mu Wallet is a simple way for McMaster University students to track their meal plan balance, recent transactions, and analytics of their day to day usage.

Demo 2
QReserve is a research equipment and services database that connects research institutions and commercial R&D service companies. We help researchers and students find and access the tools they need within their own campus or across the globe.

Demo 3
Wulves is a browser-based pet game that allows players to design and breed their own pack of fantasy wulves. Julia will be demoing our dynamically generated pet images and the genetic breeding system.

Demo 4
Ranggo is a social marketing platform for restaurants based on real-time menu item rating by their customers. Customers are rewarded with instant coupons for providing their feedback. Ranggo users can use it to find the best food in their local area.

Demo 5
We believe taking multiple perspectives is the ultimate human resource. Stepping out of your own perspective to take on another is a very powerful skill we naturally use to solve problems and make confident decisions. VistaShift is an easy 3 step repeatable process / software app that enhances our natural perspective taking ability by engaging individuals and organizational teams in a series of simple questions requiring answers from multiple points of view. Comparing answers for contrast, themes and new patterns identifies blind spots, uncovers hidden knowledge and ultimately helps to solve any challenge, quickly and confidently. This demo will be performed with the assistance of Orbital, VistaShift’s app development partner.

Demo 6
A simple but powerful WordPress plugin to take your events calendar feed and turn it into a newsletter-friendly format, so you can copy into your MailChimp, Constant Contact or other newsletter sending service.
