Project: Creating Energy Conservation Awareness in the Office
Solution: Fýllo Mouse
Expertise: Product Design; Design Research; Ethnography; Project Management; Product Development
Fýllo Mouse uses haptics and semiotics to create energy conservation awareness in the office. It alerts office workers to save energy at lunch time, the end of the working day, and on the weekend (Friday evening). A semiotic glowing leaf is provided to create a symbolic reason for energy conservation. Haptic vibration delivers tactile feedback to the office worker – it also creates resonance among the team in an open plan office, creating a shared experience, leading to a collective response to conserve energy.
