The OzCHI student challenge is a 24-hour event that precedes the OzCHI 2012 conference. During the challenge teams from around the world have 24 hours to come up with a solution to a design problem taken from state-of-the-art human-computer interaction research
The idea of using “well being” as a factor for collaboration emerged from an analysis of our initial user study. We studied what, how, whom and where collaboration occurs to understand the potential of a common space such as an office compound. This was correlated with a need to develop a micro level system of collaboration. We have also tested the viability of the solution with extensive User Studies.
We were awarded the Half time award and we made it to the Top 10 Finalists.
