OpenIDEO Concepts Coming to Life: Early Testing the “With Me” Games


In part one of our OpenIDEO series, we highlighted the “With Me” system of games. Designed by Christine Valerio, the goal of the games are to slow people down, celebrate and realize our shared humanity, and interact with people in a way that may have gotten lost in our busy lives.

On August 10th, Christine elevated her concept to the test phase by bringing a group of her friends to a senior center in her neighborhood to play the games. A breakdown of what she learned about her concept and an overall conclusion of the event can be found on the “With Me” OpenIDEO page.

There are still six days of refinement remaining, so don’t forget to visit the OpenIDEO page to learn more about the top 20 designs as well as add comments, create mockups, and sketches.
