Tuesday-world cafe

During the first session of this week, we did the world cafe in the class. It is really useful to help us brainstorm about different concepts. When doing different title of concepts, many ideas have been inspired by those posters. Through the discussion with different team members, I got more idea about what I am interested to do.

The best topic that I like is the body as the controller, I am thinking to use our body as a controller to create a fitness game. It designs for the people who want to lose weight or people who want to do some more exercise during the daytime. Users can also choose a different hard level.

Then the other that I have is the musical thing. My main concepts about music are to create a physical induction wall. People touch different illustrations can get a different sound. It designs for people who love music but cannot really play it.

The second that I like is emotional totems. Nowadays, more and more people get pressure from outside. These people really need a product to abreact their emotional when people feel sad or angry. We also want to share the happiness when we feel happy.


Finally, our main team topic is music thing. During the first class, we meet on Wednesday. We decided to use the slack to discuss during the outside of class. The unavailable timetable form and team agreement also created by us.

For the concepts: We mainly talk about how should we make sound by the object from daily use as an instrument such as a desk, pen or cup, etc. We also talked about the target audience will be the non-musical people because we are all not really good at playing the music.

Then during the spare time, all of us will think the idea of one concept about one object and sharing it on the slack by Friday afternoon.

Smart pen

Smartpen can improve work efficiency, and it can write any colour just need to scan the colour of real objects in life. Therefore, he is also a thing that enhances the taste of life. In addition, it can be used unlimitedly and only needs to be charged, so it is also an environmentally friendly product.

My inspiration

When I write something on paper, I think it's a waste of time to organize the text on the computer. But I really enjoy writing. So I think if there is a smart pencil like this, it can help me a lot in life.

When you take notes, you need different colours to highlight the points. So you need to carry different colours of pen. If there is a pen can write different colours, it can improve lots of fun.



  • work efficiency: It is designed for people who enjoy writing instead of typing words. But it's too waste time to organize the word to the laptop. Smartpen can easily transfer an article/sentences to the computer.
  • Brings fun(relieve stress from work): it can scan any colour in the real-life and be written on the paper.
  • Environmentally friendly: only need to charge it. unlimited uses.


There are two buttons. When you want to scan thing press the red button then press the green to release it.

About me

My name is yuqiao yang. I'm the 3rd year student of IT. My major is user experience design. I like this major because thinking and creating new things is a really fun thing for me.


In this semester, I hope I can get more knowledge and inspiration in physical interaction with a human. I am looking forward to learning the progress to design include how to start with an idea and then develop it. During the design process, I will get many suggestions from the different testers. Then continue doing to receive the improvement.
