A seating pad apparatus that determines users' siting postures and provides feedback on the screen of their laptop accordingly. This was my capstone project for my final year in undergrad.
Other team members: Jane Yang, Kay Li, Douglas Hsieh, Jacky Ma
The Panda Character really helps children to get engaged
A sensing seating pad for detecting the sitting postures of Children
Role: Project Lead / Conceptual Designer
Lead the team and achieve the goal of creating something that was both artistic and technological
Create many prototypes
Make sure the team is on the right direction
Create user tests
Documentation (design document and user testing document)
Topic was too broad for us to target
Resources we found were limited
Not enough testers to do the user test
What I learned:
I learned how to start a project from scratch and the process of rapid prototyping, user testing, and implementation. I also learned how to manage a team, time management, and teammate communication. Through out the user testing, I learned how interaction design was implemented and tested with real feedback instead of assumptions.
