Team distraction can cause conflict and actually stop work from being completed on time
To enhance the team dynamic experience by leveraging motion in a less distracting way that allows for the team to be more productive.
Timer & Initiate meeting
Green light on meeting indicate meeting is in session and there is no distraction happening in the group. The light ring is also a 20 minutes timer that users can check on the time without going on their phone or laptop
Touch & Haptic Feedback
Sway has a built in force sensitive resistor which allows users to simply tap the top in more discrete way and receive a vibration to signal that their input has been recorded across all buttons.
Yellow light will indicate picked moderator which allows team member to be more responsible and prepared as well as a sense of ownership toward the projects
If there is any distraction during the meeting, the light will gradually change into red to let team members know that they are being distracted
Users can easily access to Sway web app and look at upcoming meeting, on going projects, data visualization, to do list and calendar
Users can create agenda and set realistic goal for upcoming meetings
Create new meeting
User can create new meeting with individual team and invite team members
For our parts we used Neopixel light rings, sensitivity resistor, nano adruino, haptic motor control, vibrating motor disc, bluetooth sensor and battery. We were able to test out all the part individually and soldered everything together to put inside the buttons.
Sway was created using various arduino parts
