Individual Idea Generation

How might we organize and separate computer cords so they are pleasing to the eye?

New Warm-up Game

The warm up game I did is called repeat or continue. In this game someone starts with a action and passes it to another person and that person has to either repeat that action or change it to something similar and send it to another person. (we got too engaged up in the activity and didn’t get pics)

Session organization

going form left to right, Abby is a freshmen living in the dorms she has very little background with computer cables as she only owns a laptop her major is English. Joe has a large background with computers, probably the biggest of the group and is a chemical engineering major. Sean has a moderate background with computers and is a cop-sci major but is considering switching to product design. Ryan is looking to go into aerospace engineering and has little experience with computers. Amanda is a graphic design major who has little computer experience. they are all freshmen who live on my floor

The only warm-up game we did was the one that I made up. The game abruptly ended when everyone just started flicking each other off for their action.

The actual brain storming session lasted about 20 mins but got very slow towards the end. our IPM was very low at .316

Sorting and voting

The top left section was Wall related design (finding a way to stick the cables to the wall) moving right we have cable storage idea, moving to the bottom left we have ideas that didn’t meet the prompt, going left again we had ideas that focused on hiding the cables in some sort of box, all the way to the left is the one idea that had to do with color coding.

the color of the dots have no significance that’s just what I found at target.
