a more intentional future
I found it interesting to ask a user to do a very intentional, non-digital interaction in something as high-tech as an autonomous vehicle. It makes me wonder how future technology will free up our attention and time to perform more mindful interactions. I also learned that choosing who we design for in any context (ex: driver versus passenger) can drastically shape our research and ideation process.
Despite my setbacks with the 3D printer, I am glad I kept trying and used my past failures to inform my next iteration. I also learned that digital renderings will have limitations in representing physical objects (ex: height of control higher than expected). Ideally, I would have been prototyping the form sooner in the process to better understand size, shape, and depth of the two bowls.
