1.How did physically acting out help to explore ideas?
Physically acting gives us a chance to simulate real scenario, and it also let us get closer to our users. From practicing, we seem to find out more problems and design ideas, and we generated the ideas which are more relevant to users. Before acting, we imagined many problems, but the results of physically acting told us conjecture cannot replace the real situation.
2.Did you refine your ideas and solutions to the problem through bodystorming? In what way?
Bodystorming provides us the ideas which are more relevant to users, and these ideas might be more useful. Before acting, we assumed some possible problems and solutions, but we refined our ideas after acting, because some solutions were not working so well when the problems actually occur. So, we refined some ideas depend on our acting.
3.What was difficult or challenging about bodystorming?
Bodystorming requires us to simulate real scenario, it’s really difficult for us to act well or act naturally. Because some of us are not good at acting, and it’s quite hard to act like a real scene. So the difficulty of acting might lead to some misleading ideas or ideas missing.
4.Does bodystorming lend itself to certain types of problems?
I think bodystorming actually lend itself to certain problems. Because most of us are not good at acting or familiar with the real scenario which we are going to act, and these barriers might hinder us to explore problems and ideas. Nevertheless, bodystorming still a useful technique to find out problems and ideas which are more relevant to users.
