Über das Projekt

About this project

The Ideation Cube is a tool to enhance creativity and get inspiring ideas from various participants supporting cooperation of work among the disseminated group. It endeavours to determine the underlying problems experienced during a conventional conceptualizing process in a way that each individual has an opportunity to get involved in an ideation process by recording her/his ideas and cooperate with other members by sharing them.

The main goal of TIC is to inspire and support ideation phases and as a result to come up with more ideas as a team in early phases of ideation processes. TIC will allow the user to focus on generating ideas, increase creativity and inspirational sources in a gameful way that supports cooperation as a central element in a distributed interdisciplinary team. TIC supports the generation of ideas with existing techniques and tools andenables the user to share inspiration as well as generate new ideas in cooperation with others and in a gameful way. TIC is shaped like a cube and offers the user different possibilities to share and get inspired by making use of the six sides:

Dashboard: Overview of all the important information of a TIC’s game session.
Standby: Set TIC to an inactive mode.
Give Idea: Input of own ideas via audio video recording or photos without any rules and make them accessible to all team members to inspire them.
Get Idea: Take a look at random ideas from other team members to overcome creative blockades by inspiration.
Single-ID-Game: Random mini games with the aim to change the view and approach the problem from a different direction through creative techniques.
Multi-ID-Game: Comparable to Single ID-Games. Team members can cooperatively and simultaneously play small mini games to inspire each other.

TIC is applicable to any mentioned context for ideation, however, we concentrate essentially on designers, engineers or other individuals who are involved in the planning phase of a new product. TIC tackles different challenges in the area of ideation and is capable of adding a gameful experience to this field.
