Why learn about Devices and Wearables?
In the future our smart phones and other digital devices will be even more indispensable because we will use them to monitor and feedback on our health, connect with others and respond to our wants and needs in ways we have yet to imagine. Co-create with DGDL the things that people will carry in the future!

During the session, you’ll learn the following:

  • Learn more about Daily Goods Design LABS’ human-centred, design-thinking approach and how to apply it to create innovative designs

  • Understand the role you can play during the design process while being encouraged to try multiple approaches to the same problem

  • Explore the various uses of devices, plus when, where and why people use these in the first place

  • Define how people can interact and connect with future devices through scenarios you imagine

  • How to prototype a design using paper and cardboard templates. Personalize and customize your own designs according to the want-and-need scenarios you’ve imagined. Test and share with others for feedback and (should you decide to continue) develop further in future design sessions.

Who is it for?

  • Suitable for young and old - a variety of templates and learning approaches are available

  • People who want to learn more about DGDL’s specialized design process and the designer’s role within it

  • Those wanting to learn more about interactions with digital devices

    Note: All children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

    Typical duration of session is: 0.5 hour
