Feedback from Interviewees

Concept #1 – “Go out for a walk and play game”

  • Responding to each personal taste seems to provide more variety rather than designing for merely one area.
  • However, I think I will still lie on my bed instead of going out because the collection is merely displayed on your smartphone.
  • This seems to target more for girls rather than boys. I think I will use this app if it could also be applicable for games I play.
  • I can spend my time alone with this app, which I will be able to release stress by taking some fresh air whenever I want to.

Concept #2 – “VR dance”

  • Would definitely like to use this platform because I can see my bias.
  • Would feel more connected to my bias.
  • VR headset sounds expensive
  • Do not really like dancing, but this will make me active
  • Like that I can dance either alone or with my friends

Concept #3 – “Bet-with-your-friends”

  • Think it will trigger a lot when I plan to exercise because I’m actually spending my money!
  • Would be more patient and joy to exercise because it’s kind of similar to playing a game with my friends. This will also make me and my friends exercise together.
  • It will be better if I could also use alone. What if this concept could be combined with the second concept?

Storyboarding

Storyboard drawn so far

 

Not all of the boards are in hand-drawing. Some of them are created by using Illustrator.

3 Initial Concepts

3 Concepts were created over time.

The most important to consider:

When the activity is related to exercise (in fact, to every kind of efficient activity) one’s willingness is the most crucial point no matter what.

 

  1. An application similar to Pokemon Go
  • Once “Pokemon Go” was one of the game trends in the recent years, it did not only provide people for gaming purpose, but also naturally made people go out and walk. This idea inspired me to come up with a concept of users enjoying playing game while they can also have a walk by it. In other words, it makes students walk without any motivation.
  • In this concept, students will be able to collect things that they are interested in. This means that the collection category will not be only in one area.

For example,

A likes Marvel characters

B likes characters that represent his/her bias.

C likes game characters

D likes to gather a lot of information about famous places.

 

2. Dance through VR headset

  • Creating a platform which students can dance through VR headset is another concept that has came up. From this application, students will be able to watch their biases teaching dance choreography to them. Since the concept uses VR technology, students will feel that they are connected to their biases. This will motivate them to dance.

 

3. Bet-with-your-friends

  • This concept allows students to bet with their friends, but using small amount of money obviously. They will be betting (ex) 5dollars and whoever do not exercise in a given amount of time will need to pay that money. At then end, students will spend accumulated money all together who participated in that bet.
  • This concept does not naturally make them exercise. However, it will trigger more the motivation of those end-users who think they need to exercise.

I first wrote down any words that could be related to my project. Next, I connected the words to each other which seem to become as a concept.

I was not only inspired by the words shown in the picture above. Some of my thoughts were noted on my smartphone when I was in the bus or subway.
