Personal project and a gift for my little brother.
One week of focused work.
Young kids who want to track their stock portfolio.
Originally designed for my brother, this project marked a transformative journey in his perception of stock investing. The custom-made device, presenting real-time stock portfolio changes, took the abstract world of stocks and turned it into a palpable, engaging experience.
Before StockBox, the stock market was an enigma - a complex, distant world seemingly reserved for adults. But as my brother began interacting with StockBox, I saw this perception shift. The device translated the cryptic figures and charts of the stock market into accessible visuals. It served as a bridge, connecting his busy life filled with school and playtime to the daunting world of investing. His curiosity was piqued, and he was empowered to explore and understand the financial dynamics at play.
Beyond the joy of creating something for my sibling, StockBox demonstrated the potential for tangible, interactive tools to teach financial literacy to youngsters. It revealed how we can simplify complex concepts and deliver them in a manner that is not just educational but also relatable and engaging for the younger audience. From an idea sparked by my brother's curiosity, StockBox has evolved into a powerful tool, shedding light on how we can approach financial education for the younger generation.
