Review the poster

Through world cafe, I realized that I only focused on the form of this interactive installation, and ignored that every idea needs to meet some conditions. To be honest, I don't want to give up this idea, because I think it is very creative to make Low-resolution display with umbrella, so after the world cafe, I rethought the idea.

In Blackboard, There are summarized 17 different topics. I think my idea fits the theme of "Enhanced mundane spaces". In my presentation, I mentioned the use of Ultrasonic sensor to calculate the distance between people and the facility, And it will carry on the corresponding opening and closing movement along with the user's body movement.

However, I think I was in a wrong way to complete this poster. I have re-think the whole installation. Being an installation, It must fitting into the everyday life. It may can do something for people by using some simple and specific way. Several things we need to think, How the interaction could change over the time, How the installation can encourage commuters to talk to each others, and how the installation can remind people or give some information to them.  In addition, I also think maybe there are some interactions can encourage them to do something to maintain health.

So, I add some functions, like Deep breathing by following the changing of the umbrella grows and shrink like Apple Watch.

When the bus gets closer to the station, the umbrella will gradually shrink. Now, If there are more than two commuters play together, It can give them some different Interaction animation by controlling the umbrella.
