Group Project, Designing Product Interactions
My team designed a box that provides you with a playful and surprising interaction.
The box comes alive and through a series of unilateral interactions - it comes live and stands up, opens its mouth and then spits out a key for you to feed it.
Product Interaction Design
Mood Boarding & Sketching
Inspiration and Ideation
We created a mood board to inspire our surprise-inducing concept. We then brainstormed concepts and sketched different forms for the box.
Building the Concept
I designed and assembled the mechanisms to make the box come alive. Choosing simple mechanisms and prototyping methods allowed us to quickly bring the idea to life.
Mechanism Design - Animating the Box
The Surprise Box comes alive as it stands up and opens its eyes, spits out a key and then eats the key! The box resets itself after the key is inserted in its mouth and waits to surprise the next user.
