  • Good morning everyone. Introduction of team members Our design concerns fostering relationships through exploration of meals and food preparation. Xiaohan was unable to be here today. Through our own experience and observations, we recognize that ones relationship with ones partner is extremely important to ones quality of life. Based on that insight, we determined our problem space to be “how can collaborative technology be used to support the development or maintenance of a relationship.

  • For this project, we used several methods of primary research, along with secondary research, to inform our design process. Initially we started with an overview of literature in the field, and then moved on to more qualitative research methods. We focused mostly on intimacy development and food sharing and preparation for bond strengthening. First we began with a group exercise where we shared a meal and reflected on our experiences. After this reflection, we developed questions to help lead our interviews. We then conducted 5 interviews along with 3 in-home observations with couples to analyze the interactions that occur in the kitchen. We hoped to gather valuable insights from the interactions that occurred during food preparation, and possibly meal consumption. Xiaohan will take you through the insights that we developed from our primary and secondary research.

  • From our primary research- the interviews and observations, we found that there is a great desire from people in a relationship to spend time with their significant other.
  • When talking about preparing and consuming food, our research specially showed us that that the time spent with each other on making and eating meals is very enjoyable for both members in the relationship.
  • There are some papers in this field, such as Comfort Foods by Julie Locher, and by Genevieve Bell’s paper “Designing technology for domestic spaces”, indicate that sharing and preparing meal together build and create intimacy. Our interviews and observations have very similar findings as well. The couples in our research showed passions on meal preparation and consumption together and said that this benefit their relationship. //Moreover, both our primary and secondary research show that the direct time in meal preparation and consumption benefits a couples strength.
  • But at the same time, we also found that couples actually face barriers which against their desires to effectively share or prepare meals together //Furthermore, we found that there are barriers that couples face when trying to effectively share or prepare meals together.
  • Specifically from our interviews, we found that couples have different work schedule,it is quite rare for them to arrive at home at the same time. This is especially true when couples do not work with each other, or do not carpool home. //We also found from our interviews and observations that couples, who are often busy with work, school or other activities, have issues in coordinating their time with each other.
  • Even on weekends, they may have different activities, which make it hard for them to coordinate time prepare and share food together without prior planning
  • Couples tend to different preferences, and this is especially obvious when they are from different countries or regions.
  • Further, they may also have different cooking skills, for example, one is better at chopping, while the other prefers to peeling. Or one is really good at cooking meat, while the other is expert on preparing salads.
  • We wanted to provide a way for the couple to perform non-temporal, non-collocated collaboration. In order to do this, we wanted the couples to leverage what they each good at in the kitchen in order to

  • The concept test and the three usability tests showed that this system would be well received.
  • A few steps that we would approach for future work of this project focus on making this interactive device or service more personal. We imagine this occurring through the creation of recipes, where the couples could upload photos, create, annotate, tag and possibly share their recipes. We would also like to look in to the prospect of this system providing a scheduling service, which would allow the system to anticipate their arrival, and tailor what they see based on their skill level at the time. And with all future design, it is important to look in to and resolve the interface hiccups.
