1)How did physically acting out help to explore ideas
Ans: The whole idea was fantastic. We as a group enacted on the scenario of improving the waiting room in the hospital. The part of enact stop thinks stop act again gave a sense of situation of the users and gave a better insight regarding the problems that they face. It let me explore better ideas.
2)Did you refine your ideas and solutions to the problem through body storming? In what way?
Ans: Bodystorming gave a better insight into the problems faced by patients in the waiting room. We could come up with multiple personalities like specially challenged people, senior citizens, children and technologically enabled group. Coming up with various scenarios gave a better idea of what we are supposed to design a solution.
3) What was difficult or challenging about body storming?
Ans: There was one challenge here. We have not taken different hospitals into consideration or different scenarios into account. Enacting a scenario gave us a very good insight, but yet it is not the best that we could get out of building empathy with users. In real life, there will be something more to understanding the situation of users in the context of waiting rooms in a hospital.
4) Does body storming lend itself to certain types of problems?
Ans: Yes. Maybe, when it is not possible to have a complete setup of scenario, we cannot completely determine the user requirements and problems.
