Challenge: Playgrounds are not challenging enough for children of today. They are too ready made – kids want to interact more and take part in the creation of their own environment. Also, Sweden is very dark for a long time of the year.
Insight: Children are fascinated by both lights and interaction.
Solution: An interactive playground: by using Arduino, accelerometer sensors connected to LED-lights and motion sensors, we created a jungle gym that changes colour as children climb on it.
My role: concept development, prototyping, user testing, coding, building & soldering with Arduino.
