BA Project - Journey to Recovery

Team:

Claudia Buck

Description:

Sleep and recovery go hand in hand. With the intention of improving the quality of children’s sleep, a medical sleep device that requires to be worn every evening has been developed using sound. Despite its health benefits, the sleep therapy is often abandoned by the children as it proceeds due to its repetitiveness and tediousness. Journey to Recovery is a companion app that playfully combines the sleep therapy with a captivating story. With it, the children can experience a narrative chapter every evening and learn something new about sleep in the morning. Through collaborative efforts, all parties involved had a say in the process, thereby bringing the expertise of sleep researchers and the creativity of children together.

Focus Project - Adero

Team:

Mirco Grob, Marcial Koch, Seth Weber, Kiran Doshi, Franziska Eckert, Kira Erb, Lucien Erdin, Philipp Honegger, Frederic Letsch, Grzegorz Malczyk, Nico Schulthess, Andri Simeon, Andreas Voigt

Description:

Adero was created to autonomously deliver a wide range of goods in interiors, combining state-of-the-art technology with a simple but attractive design. Our title sponsor Jelmoli, the leading premium department store in Switzerland, will put our robot into operation at Zurich Airport in 2020/21. It will deliver goods ordered from the online store to predefined pickup points throughout the airport area, providing a unique customer experience. Adero actively interacts with its environment and strives to build relationships with the people it meets along the way. It captures the attention of the audience, both through sound and light, and transmits its current state using the same audiovisual means. When Adero arrives at its destination, it shows its trustworthy and friendly character, creating a novel but intuitive interaction experience.

about

I love to discover new ways to improve experiences.

Hi, my name is Randy Chen and I'm an Interaction Designer who graduated in 2020 from the Zürich University of the Arts. With my affinity for technology, I specialise on blending creativity with digital solutions. I'm passionate about creating meaningful experiences for the user by involving them in the process. This approach and interest in designing interactions and environments for the future inspired my work and has awarded me with the ZHdK Förderpreis and the Swiss Design Association (SDA) Bachelor Award.

I thrive on learning new things and finding new ways to use engaging solutions and experiences.
