Design project
• Goals
   • show innovativeness
   • make use of the different skills in your group
• Steps today
   • brainstorm – what will you produce? why? for whom?
   • sketch your design – drawings, use cases, story boards, …
   • present your ideas to all
• Steps after today
   •   refine your design
   •   distribute and coordinate work within your group
   •   implement a prototype
   •   evaluate your prototype somehow
   •   prepare a report of your activities by the end of September
   •   present your prototype and evaluation in the October seminar
What you should design
• Ideally, something that:
   • involves both hardware (e.g. sensors) and software (e.g. web interface)
   • has a fitness-related or health-related purpose
• For example:
   • heart-rate monitor connected to a computer and/or PDA
       – maintains a database of recordings to show trends
       – provides access to information on the web for comparing your results with
         others
       – …
   • a smart phone equipped with acceleration sensors to measure physical
     activity and energy consumption
   • a smart phone acting as a running mate
   • a computerized training companion for an ergometer
• Use your imagination! But don’t be TOO ambitious…
Practical issues


• Log the hours you spend on the project
   • study credits (opintoviikot) will be awarded
• Make notes of your experiences
• You should also get one report or publication out of the
  exercise
   • a publication on HCI education?
   • papers on design in multidisciplinary teams?
   • details of producing these will be disclosed later
