OBJECTIVE: Recreate a common interaction to beneficially use SIFTEO technology
ROLE: Concept Development, research & strategy, story-boarding, interaction design, visual design and prototyping
Pick some thing that we interact on a regular basis and create a whole new way to specify/control/trigger/accomplish that interaction using Sifteo cubes.
Inspired by the need to ‘understand/control’ personal financial health which can become quite complicated, multi-faceted, confusing, I attempted to create a personal financial advisor experience using the Sifteo cubes.
CONNECT by Sifteo helps to track your personal as well as team or group financial goals. Since Sifteo cubes can function independently as well together within proximity of each other, I used their ability to interact with each other by CLICKING, SHAKING, TAPPING and JOINING.
The user starts by setting up an account on the Connect website. Once the goals have been set, the cubes work independently or as part of a team to track expenses and savings. The four features – PROGRESS, RULES, SAVINGS and TEAM on the cubes work with the correct orientation and a TAP to activate.
CLICK: helps to navigate back or forth between screens.
SHAKE: takes the user back to the start.
TAP: after reorienting toggles between the four features
JOIN: all cubes for group progress
PROGRESS: Tracks your weekly and daily goals.
SAVINGS: Helps to manage your expenses by adding or subtracting from a preset amount.
RULES: Accessing the personal rules for savings set during goal setting.
TEAM: Joining the cubes for all team members’ together gives a progress report and contribution of each member.
