2) Design a better remote
The aim of the exercise is to learn how to use the strategy of grouping to reduce the information overload and speed up decision and action.
Analyzing the layout of a remote is a great exercise to assess the effectiveness of the grouping strategy. Designers use grouping to arrange buttons by task. For example, if you’re watching a movie, it’s helpful to have the forward, backward, fast forward, fast backward, pause and stop commands at your fingertips all in the same place. Despite these efforts, remotes are typically overcomplicated and we end up using only a few of those functions and buttons.
(refer to files for picture of chart)
The grouping strategy is much more sophisticated than it may appear at first glance. It must not only take into account functional groups, but also support the execution of typical sequence of events. For example, the keys for play, fast forward, ect. are all next to each other because those actions are typically carried out in a sequence. If the recorder is in play mode, the designer can use the same key for the STOP function.
Questions and Instructions
The exercise consists of analyzing one remote that you have at home and answering the following questions:
1. How many functional groups are there? How are they differentiated? (color, size, arrangement, shape, etc.)
2. Verify which of the following Gestalt laws have been used or violated in the remote controller layout (see next table).
3. Suggest design changes to create a better remote based on the Gestalt principles (you are welcome to remove existing keys or add keys the are not there). Make a quick rendition (hand drawing, drawing software program, using cardboard, collage, etc.)
4. Submit your answer and remote design in a one page document
3) Apply Emphasis
Objective
This case study shows how the emphasizing strategy is commonly applied in the design of products for the youngest users: kids! Infants, toddlers, and even older kids see the world in a much different way than we do. We could superficially argue that their world is a simplified version of the grownups’ version, but, in reality, it is very complex because it is much more imaginative. How do kids explore complexity without making their life so complicated as we do? Where does this complexity instinct come from?
Case study: the call of the wild
One of the most popular toys ever invented is the Teddy Bear. The teddy bear owes its name to the US President Theodore Roosevelt (National Park Service, 2019). Roosevelt was a passionate hunter as well as a pioneer in environmental conservation. During a hunt, he refused to shoot at a bear that had been cornered and tied with a rope because the President deemed this too unfair to the animal. The story was captured by articles in several newspapers and Morris Mitchtom, a toymaker based in Brooklyn whose company made stuffed animals, had the idea to create a new bear and name it “Teddy”, with Roosevelt permission (fig.
1).
Figure 1: a Teddy Bear formerly owned by Kermit Roosevelt Links to an external site., thought to be made by Michtom, in early 1900s (public domain Links to an external site.via Smithsonian Museum of Natural History)
This story anticipates the use of animals as fantasy characters by Walt Disney, who created Mickey Mouse and a crowd of other animal-based personages, not always easy to trace back to real animals (what kind of animal is Goofy?). Teddy Bear and Mickey Mouse are not realistic representations of animals, but nobody would hesitate to recognize in them a bear or a mouse. Animal-based characters have nothing of the wild and sometime ferocious real-life counterparts. Quite the contrary, their features emphasize tenderness and playfulness such as the warm fur and soft consistency of the teddy bear or the big eyes and ears of Mickey Mouse. Threatening or otherwise irrelevant features such as claws, fangs or sexual attributes are carefully suppressed.
Despite these high unrealistic renderings of animals, kids have no particular problem to recognize a real bear and to see the teddy bear as a special case of bear cub. The emphasizing design strategy is fully visible in these representations. Some traits are emphasized, some other are suppressed or remodeled to serve the purpose, which in this case is to create a mild version of a tender play companion exhibiting both human and animal traits.
The combination of human and animal traits has very deep root in the history of humanity. Totemic figures combining the human and the natural worlds are universal and diffused and sometime deified in most human cultures. Animals are often attributed psychological traits that are typically human such as stubbornness (donkeys), curiosity and cattiness (monkeys), loyalty (dogs), physical and moral strengths (lions, eagles) or elegance (felines), as in Esopus or Phedro’s tales.

It is perhaps not a case that graphic emphasis was also used by prehistoric artist in portraying animals and in shamanic figures with totemic features. Animals figures depicted in prehistoric graffiti are not very realistic but clearly emphasizes those key traits that a hunter would quickly notice when spotting a prey or a predator (fig. 2). After all, in nature animals move quickly, hide and use camouflage and we seldom have the luxury to contemplate all the details. Interestingly, one theory on the function of primitive art was that animal representations were also used to educate kids about nature (ref. ). This interpretation is substantiated by the very detailed depiction of hunting phases, especially when the capturing the pray would require high level of coordination and sophistication (fig. 2). Keeping up with our speculation, what if the lack of natural and scary details was the way to not scare young hunters and help them to get close to the animals without risking their life? In this sense, certain cave art would work as modern simulators and also explain why still today ferocious and ugly animals come into cute stuffed puppets that everybody loves. Totemic figures would instead be the product of imagination in the attempt to communicate with the spiritual nature of the natural world, to understand it from the inside, at the visceral and emotional level or for religious purposes (fig. 3).
Instructions and Questions
1. Visit an online or offline toy store and select a toy for toddlers that capture your attention
2. Identify which features are emphasized and how and make assumptions about why the emphasis is there and what it intends to communicate
3. Find inspiration to design a toy yourself, sketch the design and argument how and why you are using emphasis
Attach a file dressing question 1, 2, and 3. Include a picture of your toy design
4) prototyping quiz
Why prototyping helps teams to coordinate better and be more creative?
Why prototyping helps with affective and cognitive visualisation? Why are those important in the design of a new product?
Why documenting your prototyping activities is critical for the success of the project?

Project Options and What You Need To Know About How This Class Is Managed In

Project Options and What You Need To Know About How This Class Is Managed

In this class, you are respected and treated as an entrepreneur!

Entrepreneurs are not told how to do work in the real world. We are not given rubrics for projects, we are not told how many sentences it takes to answer questions, we are not guided on what format they should use AND we are certainly not told how many words should be included for an A!

We decide for ourselves how and when work is to be done. It is a HUGE advantage of being an entrepreneur.

I will be encouraging YOU to make MANY decisions. YOU choose the format and length of your projects; YOU decide when to take tests and when to submit projects.

Think about it. Does it really matter if you choose to document the entrepreneur’s responses in a paragraph or question-answer format? No, who cares, I don’t! In the “real world” and the world of the entrepreneur, what matters is the end result of your work.

Would you rather do something else as a project? GREAT! I am open to whatever will help you in your work or career. Send me a proposal on something that you would like to do as an alternative to the projects. Think outside the box and BE ENTREPRENUERIAL!

Because this is an academic environment:
The more thorough the work, the higher your grade… Short answers and a rehash of what the book says will not get you an A. I am MOST INTERESTED in your opinions and your interpretation of what you may find in the book. Fair Warning: If you choose one of the “interview an entrepreneur” projects and simply write down her/his responses to the questions, you will not do well on it. There is nothing entrepreneurial about that!

Make sure you do not miss the scheduled deadlines. Be creative, take advantage of what you do well and be thorough and detailed in your work.

MORE THAN ANYTHING… BE ENTREPRENEURIAL!

Several ways to complete projects are offered this semester. Project selections are
completely up to you.

Discuss your interest in non-profit organizations.
In your opinion, what it takes to start a non-profit organization.
What needs to be done to make it acceptable to the general public.
How to make it attractive to donors.
Describe the type of legal structure that would be most appropriate for the non-profit organization.Your contact information

What were the perceived risks of this opportunity and how did the entrepreneur expect to manage them?
What did the entrepreneur do to turn the opportunity into a business?
Identify specific activities the entrepreneur undertook to develop the opportunity into a business.
Identify when the entrepreneur did these activities (provide dates: month and year).
Identify important contacts and individuals who were helpful during the startup process.
What advice would the entrepreneur give to someone thinking about pursuing an opportunity?

6.Discuss an event that could be done to help fund the non-profit.
Option 2: (Advanced)
Pick a product or service and formulate a plan for researching the customer.
Identify what information needs to be collected (secondary and primary) and how to collect it.
Justify your decision and plan.
Present the industry analysis in a logical format, building a case for industry support of new ventures. This exercise will help you understand the importance of knowing the industry and finding support for new business opportunities.
Option 3:
Interview an entrepreneur in an industry or business that interests you. Focus on how and why this entrepreneur started their business. Relatives may not be used for this assignment. Use the following questions when submitting the assignment or create your own.
b.The entrepreneur’s name, address, title, company name, and phone number
c.How did you find this person and why did you choose her or him?
d.Describe their background
e.Why is this person an entrepreneur?
f.What influenced the entrepreneur to identify and pursue this opportunity?

b. Can you tell me about the work your organization does and the program or programs you run? [As a follow up, what differentiates you from other organizations?] (Here you are trying to get at how the organization is unique while confirming your impression of what causes or people it serves, what programs it offers, and how it gets results.) What do you think your constituents or beneficiaries would say is the best thing about your organization?
c. What results does your organization achieve? How has your program improved over time?
d. What are your goals for the next three to five years? What priorities will help you achieve them? What barriers are in your way?
e. What proportion of your revenue for next year will come from similar sources to this year’s revenue? Do you have plans to increase this consistency over time? (Here you are trying to get a sense of how stable/unstable their revenue picture is, and how dependent it is on a few decision-makers.)
f.Where is your leadership team strong, and where does it need development?
g. What is the hardest decision the organization has had to make recently, and how did you evaluate the tradeoffs involved?
h. What do you, personally, spend most of your time on?
Entrepreneurial Project Option 5:
Submit a proposal to Professor Ortega. This project may be completed on anything you deem appropriate, however, you must get prior authorization to complete it. Failure to do so will result in a 0.
