About my blog

The aim of the ITD course (ID4220) at the Delft University of Technology is to provide Design For Interaction Master students with in-depth theoretical and practical interaction design knowledge to help develop future products based on user-product social interaction. ITD proceeds through a sequence of iterations focusing on various aspects of the brief and the design, and culminates in an experiential prototype.

This blog is managed by Walter A. Aprile: please write if you have questions.



De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Last Step for nutcracking-Taggy Egg

The Taggy Egg, a social egg, is a playful medium that connects the elderly with their current environment. It is a small egg shaped device which elicits communication, attributes feedback to the actions of the elderly, or reminds the elderly not to forget certain actions which should be part of their daily routine. TheTegg offers  a multitude of services which can be used to communicate between a network of the elderly for example: one can express their emotions through the use of gestures, one can easily select the context in which they choose to express the emotion by means of an intuitive interface, and finally one can use the Tegg-timer to remind oneself actions which are part of the daily routine of the elderly.


Just for now, the "eggy" is put in a the bottle, the bottle shows the three modes of tag objects- "inside", "outside", " the person". And you could tag your feelings according to the mode you select.
Enjoy the movie~ 🙂
