Abstract [en]

In today’s society, a lot of our tools and devices go unused for the majority of the time they are in our possession. There is a needlessly large economical and environmental impact of each of us purchasing these items only to have them lay on our shelves. We have designed an application which allows its users to borrow tools and devices from their neighbours for those seldom moments when they are needed. It allows users to see the items their neighbours are willing to lend, and they can make requests for items that their neighbours can respond to. The application keeps track of who lent what to whom. This is to ensure that the borrower is held accountable for the items they have borrowed, so that the lender can have some assurance that they will have their items returned. The application was well received within a group of test users. They found the interface to be mostly intuitive, but somewhat lacking in feedback. However, due to some security flaws, the application is not suitable to be released in its current state.

Abstract [sv]

I dagens samhalle blir många av våra verktyg och apparater oanvända större delen av tiden de är i vår ägo. Det blir onödigt stora miljö- och ekonomiska kostnader av att vi var och en köper dessa saker för att ha dem ligga på våra hyllor. Vi har designat en mobilapplikation som låter dess användare låna verktyg och apparater från sina grannar för de sällsynta tillfällen då de behövs. Den låter användare se saker som deras grannar är villiga att låna ut, och de kan göra efterfrågningar på saker som deras grannar kan svara på. Applikationen håller koll på vem som lånat vad till vem. Detta är för att se till att lånaren hålls ansvarig för det som lånats, så att den som lånat ut kan känna trygghet över att sakerna kommer tillbaka. Applikationen blev väl mottagen inom en grupp av testanvändare. De tyckte att gränssnittet var intuitivt för det mesta, men att det saknades viss återkoppling. Trots det är applikationen inte lämplig för utgivning i dess nuvarande tillstånd på grund av vissa säkerhetsrisker.
