Final presentation for the Computer-Supported Collaborative Working course for the User-System Interaction (USI) program at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

The assignment was to come up with some BAD designs for babies, to get our minds going about what is bad about them and to break down the concepts purposefully.

Project partners: Maartje de Vries and Wil Rijnen
