Design Process

Step 1: User Research

We visited gyms in the Pittsburgh area, ranging in usefulness and cost. We spoke to users of the gym and employees to develop insights which informed our ideation process.

Step 2: Create Object Inventories

We took inventories of the objects and devices in gyms to discover what opportunities existed. 

Step 3: Develop Ideation and System Mapping

We met as a team to discuss our individual ideas, develop criteria for narrowing down to the best idea, and we silently voted on our favorite ecosystem concept. 

Step 4: Creation 

We created a video scenario, and five prototypes, a dumbbell, barbell, mirror, wristband, and locker that were connected.

Step 5: Test

We tested the connected devices to make sure they all synced and worked with the desired scenario.
