Human Media Interaction course - project

Project:

Babbelbord is an high-fidelity prototype of an interactive board game designed for people affected by mild-moderate dementia.
The end goal of Babbelbord is to stimulate conversation about past memories (reminiscence) between these two target groups. It has been discovered that using reminiscence can have a positive impact on cognition, mood, and behavior of elderly with dementia.

Problem:

Relatives get progressively disconnected from their beloveds, tending to visit them less due to an increasingly difficult interaction. They do not know what to say during a conversation. A different experience but with the same result is lived by caretakers. Sometimes they have some difficulties in starting a conversation or keeping it for long time due to a lack of acquaintance with the subject affected by dementia.

Personal tasks:

Literature research – Benchmark – Interviews – Observation – Storyboard – Low fidelity prototyping – Usability Test – Wireframes – Design and realization of the board game for laser cutter
