Title

Brainstorm to Prototype: Creating the Outdoor Activity Finder

Abstract

Walla Walla is abundant with outdoor recreational opportunities. Yet, they are rarely taken advantage of; most Walla Walla residents seem unaware of the vast opportunities to play outside. In part this stems from the act that there are no systems that adequately combine all information in one place in a user-friendly way. Over the course of a semester, our Human-Computer Interaction team tackled this problem in order to promote outdoor opportunities in Walla Walla. Our challenge was to consolidate the information into a mobile application that was aesthetically pleasing, fun and easy to use. We discuss our process for the design cycle, from observation and brainstorming to creating prototypes and testing them before arriving at a demo of our final prototype.
