The ideation stage consisted of HMW questions in a 4X4 grid then distilling these into 3 main ideas
Ideating combined with research on EEG signals lead to a clear convergence point:
Supporting these functional features, the device must embody similar values
2ND MIND: A mindful memory recording device
As a reflection from thinking through this project twice, I have appreciated the importance of storyline and the necessity to incorporate a strong purpose.
