The future of the workplace
At Wolff Olins we pit creativity against big challenges to build better businesses. These two days we are focused on how technology can improve our new workplace.
Let's make workplaces more interesting, useful and digital!
You have 24 hours to power a better work space using only ideas and technology.
In your group (PGMs, designers, developers, UX, strategists) you will have today to brainstorm an idea. Tomorrow you will work in your team to bring your idea to life via a prototype.
You will present your final idea to WOLO at 5pm tomorrow and they will vote for the people’s choice winner. The winning idea will be turned into reality for our new office.
Voting will also be available on Twitter – a voter of the winning idea will be selected at random to win an Amazon Echo, so tell all your friends.
Think about common problems, issues and tasks in your new workspace. Brainstorm ways to solve/refine/enhance them.
_ Who will use this?
_ What data do you have available?
_ What kit you have at your disposal?
We will ask you to share your idea at 5.30, so we can make sure that everyone is building something different.
Teams will be judged on the following criteria:
_ Will the application improve our lives and change our workplace for the better?
_ Is the solution novel?
_ Does it solve a problem in a creative or new way?
_ Did you solve a hard technical problem?
_ Did you get a working demo completed in the time?
We have provided you with some kit to get you going:
_ Arduino kit (x3)
_ Raspberry Pi (x2)
_ Arduino RFID reader(x2)
_ Arduino sensor kit (x2)
_ Arduino wifi shields
_ Beacons (x3)
