The company Haystack approached us to get some technological assistance in the development of their digital piggybank concept.
They had nailed down the overall concept and needed help figuring out how to implement the electronics and how to design the user experience around the available technologies.
Together we worked on the concept, adapting their ideas to the reality of producing electronic products and iterated on electronic sketches to try out interactive elements. The concept was tested with kids in a design game developed for the occasion, and the results were evaluated by a design panel to validate the decisions for next steps.
The project was supported by the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
