Research Synthesis Design Solution

Overview 01


01 Overview

Once we had presented our early concepts to the focus group and received their feedback, we used their suggestions to guide the development and refinement of our final design. Their comments about the coolness factor of a toy-like interface led us to take inspiration in several available toys. Their comments about the importance of simplicity, playlists, and receiving feedback about selections helped us to develop the detailed interaction. We constructed a physical prototype that demonstrates how stylistic elements from our research can work together to create the interaction style we wish to achieve. Finally, we wrote a script and drew sketches for a storyboard to help us create a video demonstration of how the müz system would fit into the lifestyle of a young modern.
