This app design was inspired by both real and fictional events. In 2016, the ITS was revealed by SpaceX. The goal is to transport many people to Mars. What kind of apps would be useful during that journey to the great red planet? Based off of fictional scenarios, an idea came to mind to learn the language of the martians. It's always easier to interact with another culture with a high understanding of the language. A friendly martian character was used in the app as well to help give the sense that these aliens really do "come in peace," hoping to give the app user a happy and fun feeling while learning the language.
