Today Tim Brooke, a creative technologist from Imagination, gave a presentation showing some of his work and how he used technology to create interactive objects. It was a great opportunity to see how the technology that we use in our projects also gets used in industry.
In the afternoon we had the chance to speak with Tim individually. During my time Tim thought I needed to focus more on the context and where my project would be used. I had always envisioned the object sitting in a household and being brought out and used during social occasions. Tim felt there might be a bigger market if the object was embedded in social places like restaurants, pubs and clubs. Perhaps one at each table or in private booths. While I valued this concept I feel its something that the project would expand into and I will stick with my original idea of a household item.
