DATA ENABLED DESIGN

Philips Design

For many doctors it appears to be quite a challenge to acquire complete information from their patients. It can be hard for the patient to paint a detailed picture of their situation without focusing too much on a specific example. uGrow+ Professional is a research project by Philips Design that tries to tackle this problem. A set of physical objects can be embedded in the context of the patient to acquire certain data. This is a dynamic process that allows the patient to keep control over the data that is gathered through a web-platform. The unique data-landscape that is created can significantly increase the speed of pattern-recognition, and amplify behavioral change.

MM2020 INNOVATIONBOX

Media Markt Nederland

The Media Markt wants to distinguish itself from other electronics stores and therefore launched the Media Markt 2020-concept in two store-locations; Eindhoven and Wilrijk (BE). Within this concept they launch their future vision on electronics.

The innovationboxes are metal boxes with a transparent display that can showcase innovative projects by start-ups and small companies. The interactive display can bring extra information, and visitors can give their opinions on the products through small polls. In this way the makers receive valuable feedback on their products before it is brought to the market.

NETWORK TOOL

ID Connect

Business cards are indispensable on network events. For ID Connect, a network event during the Dutch Design Week, we build an installation that helps connecting visitors so the business cards can be omitted.

By first scanning the visitors badge and then literally bringing the light towards each other people are being connected. This results in a connection within the visualized network, and a transfer of contact details in the form of a personalized email. The network tool enforces the connection moment and lowers the threshold to exchange contact information.

PROTOPROBES

Graduation project Pepijn Verburg

Designers, researchers, makers and hobbyists are creating more and more complex products that can sense various things in the world with sensors.

ProtoProbes is an interactive, wireless and wearable tool to see what your prototype sees. All collected data is visualized on a web application, which helps the user to discover new representations of the data. Understanding, insights and explorations are the central aspects within the visualization to help kick-start users with little knowledge and accelerate possible innovations.

DESIGNING FOR TRANSPARENCY IN DIGITAL TRANSACTIONS

Graduation project Paul van Beek

Paul’s graduation project is a research into the trust in digital transactions. Especially closed payment systems on events and festivals are missing an essential aspect; transparency. Within this project a new proposal was made for a more transparent payment-terminal, which gives the user a better insight into his cash flows and expenditure.

SPHERICAL INTERACTIONS

Graduation project Joep Elderman

How does a remote control look like when you only make use of haptic interactions? Spherical Interaction is created in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen and has explored various elements of haptic feedback and shape-changing interfaces to get to a new interaction-language.
