Designing and Implementing Android Wear for Punya




Lalana Kagal


Punya is a framework built on top of App Inventor, an Android application platform that enables users to simply drag and drop visualizable logic blocks and UI components to build Android applications. By providing advanced functionalities, Punya can target disaster-relief organizations as its main users. In addition to Android applications for phones, we are also interested in exploring the market for Android smart watches that use Wear OS. Previous students have built a basic connection between Android Wear devices and enabling simple Wear apps to be developed and deployed. The project that I would like to take on is to augment the existing Punya framework to support more UI components for Android Wear devices, including Pages, Voice Commands, etc.


As a 6-7 senior, I have been interested in how technology helps the world in the healthcare domain. Since last year, I have been working on a MIT HS&T mobile health project for Lebanese physicians to keep track of health records of Syrian refugees. Other than that, I have also interned in Amazon this summer and few startups previously.
