To Understand the User
My first challenge was to design a remote control for a television- that had four key components! What I learnt from this is what I thought was key componets for a remote may not be for others. I was designing a remote control to suit my needs. I was not thinking about other users I was only thinking about me.
My Second challenge was to choose two categories to design a remote for. I choose to design a remote for the elderly and blind. I could not think of how they visually looked but I knew the features that were required. The key to design is put yourself in the shoes of the person that is going to be using it. Think of their needs
