New life through technology.
Topic 1: Exercise and sports isn’t only about sweat, but also about dreams.
Whether you are a professional athlete, a sports enthusiast or even if you don’t like sports. Technology can reshape that perception into an even better one. We want you to come up with a device that enthusiasts love, that athletes need and that everyone enjoys. Wearable devices, peripherals for exercising machines, sensors that can asses performance and physical condition of a person, anything goes. And it can be aided with a mobile APP to connect with a larger community. With design thinking you can discover the unmet needs from the user’s point of view, and use technology to bring a more powerful, fun and engaging experience to sports.
Topic 2: Nowadays, people’s lives are are tied to screens.
Not only our own devices, but everywhere we go in the city, there are media screens fighting for our attention. Although technology has helped the communication between people, specially those far away. In general, the relationships between each other are now more alienated. For these reasons, we challenge you to think of a simple and intuitive design to create a toy or group of toys that adults and children can’t stop playing with. Something that brings people from all ages together. Lets move away from the “black mirror” addiction, take a rest from this hectic life, enjoy some face-to-face interaction with those you love.
