Idea Presentation

In week 2, both Tuesday and Wednesday were presentation sessions. Most of the students presented in class, some of them were presenting through zoom due to the coronavirus. It was a very enjoyable session, I was inspired by many ideas. The most remarkable one was the Floor coloring project. This device will project paintings on the floor, the user can adjust the color of the paint through the bracelet, they will start mopping the floor when the color is selected. In reality, a tool or device like this can be invented for house decoration. To make this idea more interactive, they can install a perfume box on the device as well. For example, when yellow is selected, the user can mop the floor with a lemon smell. Other than this project, there are lots of smart device idea that inspired me, for example, smart kitchen, smart wardrobe, smart knife, even for the smart floor. All the idea combines together can form an IoT smart home system.

Idea Grouping


Grouping themes


At the end of the presentation session, students grouped similar ideas together and wrote them on a piece of paper. I group the ideas involved in plants together. It seemed that these ideas could form a bigger idea that involved human value and more interactive. Also, I made a stress release group, there were three projects ideas that created to deal with stress problem, including smashing it, stress relief ball... I really look forward to the world cafe next week. According to the timetable, there will be an Ideation and discussion around themes revealed through inspiration presentations. I wish I can group up with the students who want to work on a similar project as mine.
