Doodle Daydream: An Interactive Display to Support Playful and Creative Interactions Between Co-workers


Interactive displays are increasingly embedded into the architecture we inhabit. We designed Doodle Daydream, an LED grid display with a mobile interface, which acts similarly to a shared sketch pad. Users contribute their own custom drawings that immediately play back on the display, fostering moment-to-moment playful interactions. This project builds on related work by designing a collaborative display to support calming yet playful interactions in an office setting.
