We gathered a number of interesting points and lessons from the brief pilot testing of the interactive Xylophone in the park on the 28th of June.
Firstly it was evident that playfulness in ageless. It was great to see people across all age groups interacting together, learning from each other and having fun.
There are fun ways of keeping active. It is best to encourage people to move, stretch and exercise through enjoyable multisensorial interactions that involve touch, audio and vision.
These become more valuable and widely utilised when they have the aim of bridging the intergeneration gap at their core, by facilitating connectedness between people.
Lastly but certainly not least, co-designing interactions is the way forward.
