The CFC Prototyping Intensive, as part of the CFC Media Lab, is a unique yet relevant asset to the Digital Futures program at OCAD University and as such it was the source of great learning during the first half of my summer. A project that myself and two of my peers, Cathy Chen and Maayan Cohen, had developed was to be taken into the CFC Intensive and developed further based on principles of Usability Testing and Iterative Design. I very much enjoyed the weekly challenge of designing iteratively based on feedback from a diverse group of knowledgable mentors.
The eHive project was taken to the next level and refined in an effort to develop a more practical application. eMapping was the result of the journey.
eMapping: An app that can be used by a group of people, in real-time, to anonymously contribute to the emotional temperature of the collective–the overall mood as well as the moods of individuals are visible upon one’s own contribution.
