Reflection:

Rolestorming is a technique that encourages group members to take on other people’s identities while brainstorming. This reduces the inhibitions that many people feel when sharing their ideas with a group, and it helps people come up with ideas that they may not have otherwise considered. Rolestorming is a form of brainstorming where people act out different scenes (similar to improv) and hope to gain different and new perspective and ideas of the interaction. I acted out three scenes by myself and three scenes with my husband. The scenes I acted out myself was not as exciting or interesting as acting with my husband. I should admit that I learnt more after I acted the  other few scenes scenes with my husband. However, when I acted out the different scenes with my husband, he provided new ideas and scenario. For example,I acted as wonder woman wearing two bracelets , so my husband suggested like I can use on of the bracelets as a bracelet itself and the other one as a screen. in one scene he complained how he wanted to see what I was doing when programming the bracelet, which gave me the idea to use a projection screen.The disadvantage of this technique was the amount of preparation it took to perform it and the initial stage of awkwardness.

The individual technique I chose to brainstorm with was to write 101 ideas. This involved me listing any and every idea I had to get to 101. The advantage of this brainstorming technique was that it gave me many, many ideas that branched off into other ideas. I was really able to brainstorm and think about all the possible options a screen could go. The one disadvantage of this technique was trying to decide which ideas were good and which ones were bad. At least I know that if the top five ideas I chose fall through, I have 96 more ideas waiting for me.

The group technique I chose was called Brain Writing which is when you “get a group of people and have them write their ideas on their own sheet of paper. After 10 minutes, rotate the sheets to different people and build off what the others wrote on their paper. Continue until everyone has written on everyone else’s sheet.” I decided to do this with a group of friends over the weekend . The advantage of this technique was that it was fun and fast.technique to help people overcome their inhibitions during group brainstorming sessions. The theory is that if you pretend to be someone else, you’ll feel more comfortable putting ideas forward. This is because taking on another role distances you from owning an idea, which helps you speak up. My friends also came up with some ideas completely out of the box which was great. The disadvantage of this method was the preparation . Again there were some ideas that came up didn’t fit the assignment at all. Lucky these ideas may be useful in later steps of the prototyping process.

Overall, I liked the rolestorming.  Rolestorming is fun, and it’s great for helping team members feel more comfortable sharing ideas with each other. It also builds confidence, because shy or less assertive people feel empowered to speak up. Brainstorming was an individual  to find a solution for a particular problem by generating multiple solutions. In fact, importance is attached to the quantity of ideas . Even strange ideas are welcome in a brainstorming session. Frequently, far-fetched ideas become practical ones with slight modification.But while doing it alone through brainstorming I faced a lot of problems like lack of innovative ideas. It takes more time and resources(things) and self created emotion. Coming up with new ideas every second and to act upon it.

In the end it wasn’t very difficult choosing the final location for the screen. I chose  to have a screen for selecting how much energy or power generation is needed is on the bracelet itself. The screen is wide enough for the user to see and locate teh suitable setting using fingertip. It is of the size 3 inches in diameter.The user knows the bracelet is working when the screen throws a ray of light.
