Human beings are often vulnerable to water-related disasters as a result of insufficient awareness. A gap in the available information often clouds our decisions. The solution to filling in this gap hinges on navigating through the vast, scattered, and enormous data. To fully harness these data, however, requires tremendous effort. Hence, we aim to bridge the gap of information with our service.

About Magic Conch
Magic Conch, a data driven solution combined both web/mobile application and wearable devices (wristband), with machine-learning forecast based on various sources of open data, as well as reliable long range communication via LoRa technology, helps to guide beach-goers to enjoy their journey without risk.
Other existing solutions may be able to provide forecast information. However, with Magic Conch, we try to bring the service to the next level by implementing features that help to avoid danger.
The combination of “prediction“ and “avoidance” is our approach to guard our users’ trip to the beach. In addition, we offer more to enrich their journey.
With a few clicks on our application, users can avoid hazardous beach conditions while looking into preferable alternatives.
On the way to the beach…
Users can take the most efficient route to the beach and monitor the traffic and crowd number approximation.
Get notified and react to imminent dangers such as UV spikes, tsunami, and life emergency.
After the trip…
Why do not you ask the Magic Conch?
Magic Conch is more than just a trip adviser application, or a fancy wearable device but provides the following:
Magic Conch is the quintessence of our ideology, and in the future, over the seven seas, we hope it marks a horizon upon which the awareness of beach safety finally rise .
Most People do not have the ability to harness the power of open data. We hope to propagate more benefits of well-informed coastal activities.
