a table displaying a smart lamp prototype



9 week project for GIX Hardware/Software Lab 2

My role: user researcher, product designer, software engineer


Children need to learn new words while reading, but using a phone to look them up is distracting.


Throughout the quarter, my team conducted secondary research and user interviews to inform a proposed solution. We presented the status of the project at 3 milestones, ending with a working prototype and demonstration.


We built a smart study lamp that detects when a user points at a word, speaks the word and definition, and saves them to a parent app to review and keep track of progress.
