Human Experience Enhancement Design
Guide:Asst. Prof. Keyur Sorathia
Weenhanced the experience of having guests with a cultural revival in ourproject. The metaphor used hails from old Indian culture and traditions.
“When a crow crows outside yourhome, you should expect a guest soon.”
A user can send a surprise tohis/her friend by sending a message to friend’s crow. The Crow will startcrowing after receiving the message, making his/her friend aware that he/shecan expect a guest. But the crow doesn’t tell anything particulars of the guestarriving, thereby creating a curiousness in the him/her that “Who is coming?”.And hence the name, “CROWRIOSITY.” A crow which generates curiousness in user.
TargetUsers: Group of friends or family.
Deliverable: Toy Product (crow) & Mobile Application.
Prototyping Components used : Arduino Micro-controller, Adobe Flash,NET Lab Toolkit, Crow Toy, and Speakers.
