Tarties (Elevator Pitch)

21 نوفمبر

For: frequent public sidewalk traveling pedestrians in urban areas

Who are dissatisfied with: getting caught in inclement weather, not having enough space to walk past/around people, and missing the bus/other form of public transportation due to unawareness of arrival times

Our innovation offering is: an wider, interactive sidewalk

That provides: audio and visual warnings in reference to incoming public transportation and upcoming weather changes via marquees and mounted outdoor speakers. It will also adapt to inclement weather by raising and lowering a canopy to shelter pedestrians from the weather and as well excessive sunlight.

Unlike: every other sidewalk in the world that provides nothing other than an escape from pedestrians walking in the street with cars

Our innovation has: colorblind friendly LED’s that change colors depending on the condition of the sidewalk due to weather; marquees displaying inbound taxis and buses, as well as traffic delays and the daily forecast; and a canopy that rises when there is excessive sunlight or inbound inclement weather. There are also audio announcements of all of these visual cues when the status of one of the weather or public transportation patters change

Nice work on the elevator pitch.

But, please upload your research findings as well as your findings from your field research. You can look at the “Designing Individualism” group for a good example of field research. Also you can use yourselves as the interviewees and document your experience. Or perform observational research where you simply observe people walking through the city and document your observations.

Additionally, don’t finalize your concept yet, let this remain as one idea. Continue brainstorming alternate ideas and please upload your brainstorming activities as well.
