For this week, we were asked to make a lo-fidelity toys to be play-tested for our next class.
Some of the prompts given to us were:
– Target a persona, could be a child or adult
– Must be played within a specific environment
– Should be built under three materials (e.g batteries, electronics, wood…)
Winnie and I talked about how tech-heavy the toys nowadays are. Trying to bring technologies to kids as early as possible. Which is so different from what we used to have when we were young. We came across Pinaffo Pluvinage’s Papier Machine and love the aesthetic of their work. Why can’t classic and tech toys have a good match?
We list down some of the classic toys we know, and re-engineered it to add elements of tech to it.
