Description

Sprint 3

For this sprint we wanted to do user tests in order to advise Sound and Vision and ourselves on how to move further in the next sprints. For this reason, we have decided to test two of our visualized concepts on users in order to narrow them down to one idea that we can suggest this to Sound and Vision for further development.

We have created two tested scenarios for these concepts Hide and Seek and Data Zap.

Hide and Seek

Checking if the software is working.

Checking if the software is working.

After inviting the visitors to come and test, and introducing the game as a possible installation we let them play/experiment. The purpose of this testing was for the participants to create a camouflage for facial recognition software with several materials, like face paint, fake hair and post-its to draw on and use as coverage. Once the participant thought that the camera will not be able to recognise him/her, we would make a snapchat picture to confirm whether their face is recognise or not.

DataZap

The board for Data Zap

The board for Data Zap

For this concept, we invited visitors to play a Monopoly based board game. The objective was to buy as much houses as possible,the player with the most houses would be the winner.Each player then would get 10 personal data cards and would role the dice. A MediaLAB employee would be the banker. The player could buy the house of interest with an exhange of their personal data, the higher the price of the house, the more personal the data became. When the game came to an end and there was a winner, they would be presented with a card of the ,supposidly, previous winner of the game and all his personal data in order to give them a choice.Would they choose to retrieve the price we have prepared for them with an exchange to make a profile of all their personal data as the example of the previous winner,or not?
