❊ New Explorations
What did you plan to do?
I decided to pivot my previous project direction from a personal platform to an installation. I would have to start to do it.
What did you actually do?
These were the ideas I had:
I talked to Gretchen earlier, and I should just start to make the installation and test it out.
The idea is to prove my hypothesis: Haptics affects memories.
Then I started to design the interface for the instruction of the experience from the storyboard draft I drew.
What surprised you?
It was really hard for me to decide on something, especially when an idea isn't solid enough.
What you plan to do next week?
I will finish figuring out the objects offered to people, and designing interface. I will test out the idea during the break with friends.
◆ In-class Presentation
Talking about Transportation
This week, Gina, Jessica and Omar did the last presentation, which is about transportation and wayfinding.
Since wayfinding was a big part of my internship, a lot of the topics were no stranger to me and it was really interesting to hear it from another perspective. I was really stoked by the principles of Universal Design. It was mostly for products in terms of ergonomics and experiences, which brought me back to industrial design mindset. I enjoyed it a lot.
We then were assigned to do a design sprint for the Yamasaki Family.
I was in the group with Jamie, Jackie, Alvin and Ruitao. We were mostly thinking about a seamless and effortless experience for someone who has never been to SFO.
Here is what we came up with:
