What we're about

We are makers interested in solving real world problems using the Design Thinking process to create innovative technologies.

Come on over and toss ideas around! Get feedback and discuss how to make your idea a reality. (You may even get other makers excited enough to join you in your vision!)

Sometimes over coffee, sometimes over beer.
Everyone gets to contribute!

What is the Design Thinking process?

In essence, the Design Thinking process is iterative, flexible and focused on collaboration between designers and users, with an emphasis (https://www.interaction-design.org/literature/topics/emphasis) on bringing ideas to life based on how real users think, feel and behave. (https://www.interaction-design.org/literature/article/5-stages-in-the-design-thinking-process)

Design thinking tackles a complex problem by:

• Empathizing: Understanding the human needs involved.

• Defining: Re-framing and defining the problem in human-centric ways.

• Ideating: Creating many ideas in ideation sessions.

• Prototyping: Adopting a hands-on approach in prototyping.

• Testing: Developing a prototype/solution to the problem.
