After doing some user research in primary schools and thoroughly analyzing the interviews, we came up with two insights. One of them the idea of using augmented reality in classrooms. Specifically in music lessons.
Schools usually don’t have the money or the capacity to own a lot of instruments. Generally, there is not much space in classrooms for pupils to make some music together with various different musical instruments. Just imagine having a set of drums, a piano, cello and a bunch of guitars in one room, it can get quite crowded and probably too noisy for the rest of the school.
That’s where our idea comes in: The schools don’t have to own the instruments, all they need is augmented reality glasses and a pair of gloves for every child in one class and they can play whichever instrument they wish. This concept could also help motivating the pupils to make music and be more interested in it. Furthermore, it encourages the children to create something together and strengthen their sense of community.
To visualize our idea and later shoot a video prototype we created the storyboard above.
