Design Goal and Interaction vision
The design goal; “I want children in the age of 4 to 7 be driven involved in the traffic, when entering a crosswalk near primary school.”
The interaction vision; My interaction is gonna be like bicycle without training wheels for the first time.
“Running, talking, playing.” A lot of activities are present during crossing the street, but involvement in the traffic is hard to find. For parents an unconscious routine, but for children an important activity to learn and to realize the impact of their safety in the early stages of your life. These activities could stay, but have to remind the parent and the child to participate conscious in the traffic.
Floo helps you to take the crosswalk in a safe way. Floo wakes you up, stimulates you to look around and let you shine over the crosswalk. Cars and bicycles could recognize you from far away, which give you the pride that you made it possible that you and your parent could cross the way safe (SMIT.jpg, SMIT1.jpg).
