‘Smriti’ - student community event notification device
Designing for interactivity ( Cognitive - Mental )
Design Challenge - to order, to structure, to remember
Design Brief -
Smriti is an attempt to bridge the gap in communication between IIT students and event community. The problem area is that in IIT Bombay there is no effective email notification or reminder and unavailability of earlier notices regarding various events. There are so many scattered notices at different places, so students face difficulty in remembering the date, time, venue and all other information.
The basis of the product is at personal level that works as its interface and is driven by active features like colour, shape and sound corresponding to sensory modes of the visual representation. The interaction itself is facilitated by a touch screen.
The interface of device shows the all information about particular event in which he is interested. The interaction also allows him to remember and register for a particular event.
