Demo 2


9th November 2016

The second iteration has flown by. We’ve worked hard towards this demo and were excited to show our progress. Last times feedback was that the ‘aggression room’ maybe isn’t really the solution to solve sensory overload. Based on the interview with Roy and Nico, we came up with a new solution.


We’re sticking to the concept with our ecosystem of daily office products with sensors in it to measure your stress level. But, we definitely stepped away from the aggression room. With the new insights we’ve received from the interview I took, we brainstormed for a new solution. The results of the insights were mainly:

  • People don’t know what sensory overload is, because they never experienced it.
  • Every sensory overload occurrence is different in each situation and person.
  • Try to get to know what gets you sensory overloaded.

By using our ecosystem products, we can scan when you’re getting stressed. The second part is, try to record these moments. So, we came up with a dashboard that contains a graph of heartbeat rates. When it has a peek moment, you’re alarmed to fill in what was annoying in the environment. After repeatedly filling this in, you can created an baseline on what overloads you the most. When this is concluded, we’re giving you dynamically a solution to get rid of this aspect.

To make a long story short, the user uses our ecosystem product, then monitor yourself in the dashboard and provide a dynamic suggestion to a solution.


  • App has to be customizable for each user, at least that’s a good idea.
  • How sure are we that the user chooses the right cause?
  • Psychologists use the method of monitoring sensory overload, but the user doesn’t remember what the cause was.
  • Use the dashboard as a measurement tool.
  • Supervisor account → dashboard. Manager does know how to help. Doesn’t need to contain personal information.
  • What solution helped? Show that too in the graph.


By gaining the feedback from Acknowledge, it gives a sign that we’re on the right track. So, for the next iteration there needs to be searched for more user data by taking interviews. Probably ask more in a concrete way about our concept. Test if they can, will and want to use it. I think there’s a lot to improve, so test, iterate, test!
