Tellybox is a BBC R&D project set out to prototype the way we experience TV in the next decade. Their intention is to understand how people watch TV at home, negotiate and decide on what to watch. Such ethnographic research will then inform their design concept and enable behaviours. Tellybox team consisted of a product owner, a technologist and a researcher.
Tellybox’s intention was to understand how people watch TV at home, negotiate and decide on what to watch. Such ethnographic research would then inform their design concept and enable user behaviours.
I had the chance to conduct a desk research on the 'future of TV' and 'collective watching' looking at HCI academic paper reviews and industry articles from 2015 to this day. I then interviewed friends and family to understand their habits and needs.
Preliminary desk research findings resulted in three themes of suggested prototyping guidelines.
Finally, a set of design guidelines resulted from this research and suggested design concepts. Constraints enhanced a positive attitude and creativity. Tellybox was a project that helped me look further how we design for the future products.
