interacting...

video

movie showing user interacting with the switch, and its visual response.

testing out the switch and visual response



This is just one of the possible way for setup.

* picture was taken when testing out the switch and the visual response.

final switch design






This switch plays on the idea of weight and balancing.
However, it has simply but effective function mode.
The user can tilt to the left to activate left button, tilt to the right to activate right button, or keep the balls all spread out to deactivate both buttons.

Movie for year 1960

"Bridging the gender gap". This is a serious topic, but in order for the audience to easily understand the story, I decided to re-tell the story in a fun, and not so serious way, therefore the movie that I've made will show them the story in a way as if they are reading a digital comic book.

I think that by re-telling the story in such a way will be more interesting than showing the audience real life historical images, as they can be more graphically attracted to the comic style, especially for children.

concept idea 3

a game for user to play. User will increase or decrease the pay rate for men or women by tilting the switch to left or right, and the year will increase and decrease accordingly. The idea is to get the pay rate for both men and women to equal. Once the pay rate is equal, a video will pops up, showing the user the story on this particular topic.
switch control:
tilt to left = increase woman's pay
tilt to right = increase man's pay
