When it comes to what I want this app ‘pbnd’ to achieve the main focus is to highlight how different people want different ranges of personal space. Be it due to cultural reasons or just personal experience based reasoning everyone has and needs their own space. Currently I am trying to get a shape (essentially a circle) to be scaled up and down according to a slider. Once I get that working I will look into using gestures to control the size and shape of the space as who is to say personal space is bound by a circle?! In addition I will look at having a few presets for personal space based on different regional and cultural conventions.
I chose the name pbnd (pronounced ‘p bound’) as I wanted it to originally be ‘pboundaries’ but I felt it was too long so I abbreviated it and liked how it looked next to the logo I made for the iOS icon! It also rolls of the tongue quite well. Just one thing - lets ignore the fact pbnd is an acronym for Peanut Bud Necrosis Disease or a democratic party in Romania.
