POM Material for Laser Cutting Overview Here you will find all the information, tricks, know-how, and advice to help you laser cut and laser engrave your model in our POM material. You will learn about: Welcome to the Virtual Crash Course in Design Thinking Welcome to the d.school’s Virtual Crash Course resource page! We know not everyone can make a trip to the d.school to experience how we teach design thinking. So, we created this online version of one of our most frequently sought after learning tools. Using the video, handouts, and facilitation tips below, we will take you step by step through the process of hosting or participating in a 90 minute design challenge. If you choose to participate, in 90 minutes you will be taken through a full design cycle by participating in The Gift-Giving Project.
Victor Manrique's Blog - Gamification Design Framework: The SMA Model The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community. The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company. Gamification Design Framework: The SMA Model Gamification: A design experience to fun, happiness and motivation Gamification is a design experience to happiness and motivation. We should never forget that Design is Gamification´s biggest challenge and where all its power lies, like a double-edged sword.
Hype cycle for development ideas: 2014 edition The “hype cycle” is a wonderful conceptual framework for understanding how technologies move from initial invention to widespread application. The basic path is simple: whenever a new technology comes along, it usually gets hyped to the point of inflating expectations about how much it will revolutionize your life, then reality will sink in and we’ll all be disillusioned by the unfulfilled promises, after which it finally rises to a level of productivity. Visually, it looks like this: (Source.)
Theories & Methods « Systemic Design Theories and Methods of Systemic Design Back to RSD3 proceedings overview Peter Jones. X8-2200 - CNC Desktop Engraver -omiocnc.com X8-2200 is a very good commercial CNC engraving machine which was produced by us, it was favored by many SMEs at the beginning of the release. It has a powerful control system processing capacity, stability control system, very favorable purchase price and low usage cost. X8-2200 standard come with OMIO-EPL-4F control system, It is a professional CNC engraving control system, we developed it for business users. It uses ARM + FPGA architecture design, reliable performance, high precision control, easy to operate. Uniaxial output pulse up to 500KHz, adjustable pulse width, supports high versatility FANUC compatible G-code instruction set. X8-2200 no longer needs to work with computer, it was greatly enhanced the stability and reliability.
[Beta] How do you design? This book is not finished. We’ve been developing it over the past few years. It began as a manilla folder with copies of different process models. We completed the first “book” version as part of a project undertaken for Elaine Coleman and Sun’s Virtual Center for Innovation. Guide to Agile Practices Definition In consultation with the customer or product owner, the team divides up the work to be done into functional increments called "user stories". Each user story is expected to yield, once implemented, a contribution to the value of the overall product, irrespective of the order of implementation; these and other assumptions as to the nature of user stories are captured by the INVEST formula. To make these assumptions tangible, user stores are reified into a physical form: an index card or sticky note, on which a brief descriptive sentence is written to serve as a reminder of its value.
Holacracy Distributed Authority Holacracy is a distributed authority system – a set of “rules of the game” that bake empowerment into the core of the organization. Unlike conventional top-down or progressive bottom-up approaches, it integrates the benefits of both without relying on parental heroic leaders. Everyone becomes a leader of their roles and a follower of others’, processing tensions with real authority and real responsibility, through dynamic governance and transparent operations.
Why Mood Boards Matter It has happened to everyone. You spend countless hours producing a beautiful, pixel-perfect comp only to have it rejected by the client because it isn’t what they were envisioning in their mind’s eye. It’s the dreaded “I’ll know it when I see it” curse. You get sent back to the drawing board, your ego and the budget take a hit, and everyone is frustrated by the process. After this happens a few times you realize that getting the client involved earlier in the process can make a huge difference in the outcome of your design presentations.

Ayelet Lazarovitch Video Veronika Scott – The Empowerment Plan It’s lovely to see how a complex problem can be solved while offering so much added value. This is the story of how product design and system design intertwined to offer a holistic solution to homeless people. Like this: Like Loading... Google Ventures: Your Design Team Needs A War Room. Here's How To Set One Up In the last two years at Google Ventures, I’ve done design sprints with more than 80 startups. One of the simplest tricks I’ve learned is that a dedicated space with walls—a war room—always helps us do better work. The walls of a war room can extend a team’s memory, provide a canvas for shared note-taking, and act as long-term storage for works in progress.
