INTERACTION DESIGN STUDIES

Together with Interaction Design students from the Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences, we developed prototypes of reminder tools that make the solutions tangible. These range from experimental companions all the way to complex interaction strategies with connected everyday objects.

Keymind

a key that enables users to carry all the information they need with them

NextUp

a digital bracelet that visualizes route and time, taking their correlations into account

Explort

a watch serving as a navigational system that can be enlarged on public displays


(Katharina Herzog)



SPIRIT GUIDE & LOCATION BADGE

While the students focused on wearables in accessories, we worked on a smart coat: Spirit Guide is a garment that is connected to the Internet. When you attach a so-called Location Badge to it, it receives all the necessary information to get the wearer to the destination. In our sensoric prototype, navigational data in the badge is transmitted to an Arduino-based navigational system within the coat via NFC. Vibrating shoulder pads direct the Spirit Guide wearer through the city and react to sudden route changes. An additional smart watch visualizes more complex routes, including timetables and public transport information.
