W01│ Principles and Practices

  • Plan and sketch a potential final project.

1. Potencial Project.

I'm always asking questions. It's part of my life and my design process. So, to start with my final project I will answer the following question by using a Human Centered Methodology.

How might we encourage people to change a sedentary lifestyle?.

According to the World Health Organization, the physical inactivity is a Global Public Health Problem.

The current levels of physical inactivity are partly due to insufficient participation in physical activity during leisure time and an increase in sedentary behaviour during occupational and domestic activities. Likewise, an increase in the use of "passive" modes of transport has also been associated with declining physical activity levels.

The goal is to encourage people to start an exercise routine. You have to make between 5 and 10 minutes of exercise and each day you will have different objectives. My product will be like an exercise mat wich connects with an App. I'm planning to use motion sensors and also design dumbbells that will connect to the mat to help tha rutine.
