Describe the product. What is the product called? Who is the target audience? How does the product improve the lives of the target audience through technology? What is the history that has led to the development and creation of the product? Use your imagination. The presentations should be from 5 to 10 slides in length. This Slides presentation will be presented to the class by the group. Both the Slides presentation and its presentation to the class will be graded.
