An elegant solution that combines immersion and learning in a seamless way to help children to learn while at play.
We help catapult a child's learning through contextual projection immersion and activities. Both these are seamlessly integrated to create a tangible experience for children while creating an ecosystem where parents can also monitor and regulate the kind of content they access. It is a child-driven system that focuses on the process.
The product's primary vision is to make sure children avoid the clutter of screens for immersion and enjoy the magic of augmentation. Children should think about limitless possibilities, should feel a sense of joy, and be free to explore and stay creative.
Children will be able to select environments and draw while experiencing different immersions. As the child draws the cameras embedded in the projectors understand the content drawn and give related audio-visual immersions and information bubbles to spark the child's imagination while parallelly giving them vital information.
The child can also bring a 3D form to the mat. The projector will map the surface and based on the context and create custom immersions that can wrap around objects as well. This can help the child understand space and form very well, ultimately giving them a tangible tactile experience of augmentation.
Parents will be able to monitor the child's activities on Nuri through the parent mobile app. All the work done by the child on Nuri will be logged in the memory lane feature. When away parents can also watch their children draw using the live drawing feature. Nuri also comes with a Nuri Activity Store that has an array of verified activities and immersions for the child to learn from. Parents can individually get analysis on the kind of activities their child accesses and how to give them a holistic exposure using these modules as well
As our primary stakeholders are children and parents, we had to follow a very holistic approach towards refining our design. We primarily have 2 scenarios to explore: the immersion system sparking the child imagination and a parent guided activity done by the child
As our primary stakeholders are children and parents, we had to follow a very holistic approach towards refining our design. Every detail was taken into consideration in an ethical and moral way as our targeted audience had very specific needs and behaviors. In the end, the process enabled us to create a beautiful experience for the child and parent to grow in.
We started off by conducting a survey to initially understand what parents and children want with an Augmented system. With the insights we got, we narrowed down to a set of ideas and features we can explore. We then started by sketching out the different ideas we had for the product and made low fidelity prototypes for the projection and mobile interfaces.
We then refined our prototypes into a greyscale system to bring a lot of visual and navigational clarity. These prototypes were made for all the 3 systems - the immersion interface, the product and the mobile app interface. After analysing the results from the previous round of testing, we refined our prototypes and scenarios. This enabled us to come up with a simpler flow that brings forth the major aspects of the product in a clear sequence.
Post another round of user testing, we were able to zero down on key features and components of the product. This enabled us to render the different aspects of the experience.
As Gen Alpha is our targeted audience, all the colors are inspired by the things they own, wear and relate to. Using subtle hues, we were able to create a palette that is lively yet minimal in aesthetic. It is also inspired by natural colors which are easy on the eyes. The patel uses contrasting hues making it more child engaging and simple to understand.
After all the testing and refinement, we created our mood boards and design system that guided our mid-fidelity wireframes into the high fidelity mockups. All the animations were snappy, the prototype was clickable, the content was based on the scenario and all the colors and fonts were integrated. Those prototypes were one last time tested to check if our users were able to navigate and flow through the screens comfortably.
Nuri as a platform has the potential to grow into becoming a community that enables child learning through augmentation. Over the course of time, Nuri can: Introduce 3rd party companies to generate content and immersion, create a Child and Parent community, make enhanced immersion for older children with focused learning modules, become a portable device that can bring immersion to multiple surfaces and places.
