Earlier this semester, Interaction Design first year masters students worked with the Advanced Product Design first year masters students on a two week sound design project. The basis of the brief was to pick an existing product that has either no or little sound design properties and redesign the product with a focus on sound while also evaluating and redesigning form and light aspects.
Within my group of four (3 IxD’ers and 1 APD), we designed an interactive mixing bowl that aims to create a playful and positive educational baking experience through de-emphasizing the focus of accuracy, and reinterpreting the measurement and relationship of ingredients via real-time sound and light feedback.
More details will be given later this spring once I update, both in content and design, my portfolio, but for now you can view process videos of our working prototype below.
